With the Winter months fast approaching, it’s important to prepare your home and your family for the inevitable drop in temperatures by completing a furnace tune-up. A tune-up can help your furnace run more efficiently, keeping you warmer and costing you less. To learn more about what a furnace tune-up is and why it’s important, keep reading.
The ultimate goal of a furnace tune-up is to ensure your home’s furnace heating system is working optimally. Many homeowners fail to realize the importance of a tune-up, and as such, the HVAC systems in their homes must work in overdrive to try and produce enough heat to keep everyone comfortable. The bottom line is that a tune-up will determine and fix problematic areas with your furnace, allowing your HVAC system to work better and with less power consumption.
So, just what exactly does a furnace tune-up consist of? First, there’s a thorough inspection of yourfurnace with all the surrounding components and blowers. If there’s a loose nut, bolt or some other part not in the correct place, the Comfort Guy will fix it.
The duct system is another area that a professional HVAC technician checks when performing a furnace tune-up. After years of use, ducts sometimes get filled with dust and debris, making your home’s HVAC system work less efficiently than what it should. In addition, dust mites can actually live and thrive in dirty ducts, something no homeowner wants. Even if you keep your house clean, dust mites will be blown throughout the house every time you turn on your heating or air conditioner. Our technician will remove the ducts and clean them out.
A safety test should also be performed on your system during a furnace tune-up. The technician typically runs a battery of tests aimed to ensure that no harmful chemicals or byproducts are being created as a result of your furnace. We all know about the dangers of carbon monoxide, as it’s the leading cause of poison-related deaths here in the U.S. To prevent this from happening to you or your family, you should hire an HVAC technician to come out and inspect your furnace and check for carbon monoxide.

Gary R Jeff designed a great Mitsubishi Mini Split for my new Music Room. Julio and Marlon did a great job on the initial pre-plumb, and Julio and Jake returned to finish the install. I did have one minor glitch, and Jeff sent Barry out to take care of that. Great equipme...
Lisa G Have had nothing but positive experience working with R&S. Brittany is the front end of the company and does a great job representing company. friendly, pleasant and helpful. Provides accurate information and follows up as she says.
Sean H. I had R and S come out to my house for the second time in the last couple of years to fix an issue with our heating system, and they were able to show up quickly and promptly and fix the issue the same day. The folks I have dealt with at R and S have all been very friendly and helpful in explaining the two issues with our heater thus far. We've had very good experiences and would definitely recommend to other homeowners.
Mancy M. I would recommend R & S Mechanical at any time for those who are looking for professionalism and ability to make a major job look like it's a minor one. I contacted R & S as one of 5 suppliers and service companies to install a new unit in my house. Even though price was a factor, but I was also looking to work with an organization that would be honest and caring. I did find such values with R & S. They were the only one out of the five who actually called to follow up on their offer and ensure that everything was well explained and clear. Absolutely great guys and they made sure to keep the place clean after they left. I definitely made the right choice.
Jennifer R. I have dealt with R&S since I moved to Raleigh four years ago and they have taken consistently good care of my HVAC units. They are prompt, professional, courteous and definitely pick up after themselves. They even call me to schedule regular maintenance that comes with my service contract instead of me having to remember. I can get an appointment very quickly if something breaks on me and they always arrive early. I'm overall very satisfied.
Gail S. I have always been pleased with their service. They are quick to respond, even on weekends. I would definitely recommend them.
Carol C. Our overall experience with R&S has been exceptional. We have been homeowners for over 30 years and have never had better service, concern and respect as we have received from R&S. Highly recommend.
Barb and Jerry Our AC system failed on a Friday afternoon at our Daughter's condo. Shortly after our call, Randy and Mike came to our condo, diagnosed the unit and loaned us portable cooling units over the weekend. They installed a new system and got us up and running the following Tuesday. Their prices and service were great! Very responsive, very straight forward, no hard sell unlike the big companies. Highly recommended - excellent service!
