Why do a furnace tune up ?

Furnace manufacturers all recommend annual inspections and maintenance by a qualified  furnace technician.  Many include language mandating in their warranties  that damage to the units caused by improper maintenance is not covered under warranty.

Most manufacturers recommend getting newer furnaces checked every other year, but if your heating unit is over ten years old, it is recommended to have these furnace units  checked annually.
