What entails a furnace tune up and why does it need to be done annually?

Warranty exclusions, innuendos, catch phrases and furnace breakdowns are what you will get from the typical heating contractor and furnace manufacturer.  What does all that have to do with an existing heating system?  What does that have to do with a furnace tune up?

Freon leak detection, Puron leak detection, R410a, R22, Santa Ana, Irvine
Electronic Freon leak detection and sight Freon leak detection

One thing that has always bothered me during my career is the general misconception that central air conditioning systems use Freon. Your central air conditioner does not use Freon, it circulates Freon. If your air conditioning system is low on Freon, you have a Freon leak. You should never have to add Freon to your central air conditioner. Freon (Puron, R410a, R22) is not something that needs to be replenished by a couple of pounds each year and during a maintenance check the Freon levels are verified, but adding Freon is not part of normal maintenance for an air conditioner or heat pump. Freon is what conveys the lubrication for the wall of compressor in the outdoor condensing unit. Failure to maintain the oil levels in that compressor and running the central air conditioning is like running your car engine with no oil in the crankcase. It will destroy it.  If you need to add pounds of Freon each year you are causing long term damage to your air conditioner or your heat pump.
Finding Freon leaks and fixing Freon leaks is not as difficult as it was once. Modern Freon leak detection methods.



The Government has invaded Your Home
See how new federal legislation has affected your heat pump. your central air conditioner and find out how much this legislation can cost you when you maintain your current air conditioner and when you invest in a new air conditioner. Freon laws are all encompassing when it comes to cooling your home.

New central heater and air conditioner restrictions occur yearly. These new laws increase the cost of the heating and air conditioning systems and installation. The sooner you invest in efficiency, the less it will cost you.
