Dallas Furnace Tune-Ups
We see it all the time: A homeowner puts off heater maintenance because they think their furnace will run just fine through winter — after all, it only gets used for a few months out of the year, right? Then their heating system breaks down during the first cold snap of the season.
While Texas and the Dallas area see mild winters, getting stuck without a furnace can still leave you shivering and uncomfortable in your home. With furnace maintenance from Public Service Plumbers, you can avoid inconvenient breakdowns and ensure that your heating system runs smoothly all winter.
Taking care of your heating system is as easy as scheduling a heater tune-up.

What’s a Furnace Tune-Up?
Although furnace maintenance doesn’t sound as important as a heater emergency, protecting your heater as an investment is essential. We know you put time and effort into purchasing your furnace, or at least the home it came with. Just as your vehicle needs attention to keep it safe and efficient, so does your heater. You don’t want to cause premature deterioration that can easily be avoided.
If you want the most effective heating for the longest time, you have to take care of your furnace. We don’t expect you to know how to do that, but we do! How do our technicians maintain your heater?
Benefits of Regular Heater Maintenance
A furnace typically lasts 15 to 30 years, depending on whether it uses electricity or gas, but regular tune-ups can ensure that the system lasts years longer than it would without maintenance.
Between maintaining high efficiency, catching repairs early, and preventing the permanent wear and tear often left by breakdowns, regular heater maintenance offers the perfect formula for a long-lasting heating system.
The benefits of scheduling regular heater tune-ups each year include:
- Reduced risk of breakdowns
- Increased system efficiency
- Lower energy bills
- Catching unnoticed issues
- Extending the life of the system
Our Furnace Maintenance Process
No heating company performs its maintenance the same way, and our team is dedicated to going above and beyond your expectations. This means every second of service you receive is focused and respectful of you and your property.
We complete three main steps to accurately evaluate your system and give you a report we’re confident in.
During your annual furnace maintenance, our technicians will adhere to a detailed process and strict industry standards, guaranteeing a thorough tune-up.
Our furnace maintenance process includes but isn’t limited to:
- Thorough visual inspection of your furnace and the exterior of ducts, vents, etc.
- Cleaning or replacing the air filter as is appropriate for your model
- Inspecting and cleaning the burners and the blower assembly
- Checking your heat exchanger and flue for any evidence of leaks or damage
- Inspecting and cleaning the flame sensor and the thermocouple as needed
- Testing your igniter or pilot light for problems
- Assessment of blower motor current, airflow, and temperature
- Testing and calibration of your thermostat
Once the technician finishes assessing the function of your unit, they’ll provide a report on their findings. We don’t find things to charge you for. We see things that need fixing and save you a lot of stress in the future. You can trust that our team will thoroughly explain any recommendations we have and give you all the information you need to make a decision.
The last thing we evaluate before we leave is your comfort. You’re the one who has to live in your home with your heater’s performance. If you’re unhappy with your heating or have questions you need answered, this is the perfect time to voice them. Our technician can resolve any further problems you have and make sure you’re satisfied with your furnace.

Frequently Asked Questions About Furnace Maintenance
Can I do furnace maintenance myself?
No! While there are some simple maintenance tasks you can perform to care for your system, a thorough tune-up requires a professional.
In addition to scheduling routine furnace maintenance every fall, you can take these steps to protect your furnace:
- Replace your air filters every 60 to 90 days or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Visually inspect the exterior of your furnace once a month for damage or signs of a leak.
- Install a carbon monoxide alarm.
- Keep the area around your furnace clear of debris.
- Consider signing up for our Shield of Protection Club, which includes exclusive discounts, benefits, and more, while ensuring your furnace gets annual tune-ups.
What does furnace maintenance include?
Our team performs thorough furnace maintenance to ensure your system is ready to operate at peak efficiency. Our furnace tune-ups include testing and inspecting:
- The blower
- Electrical connections
- Complex, moving parts
- Moving parts/lubrication
- And more
During your appointment, our technicians will make necessary adjustments to your heating system and address any minor issues before they escalate into major problems.
When should I schedule furnace maintenance?
The ideal time to schedule annual furnace maintenance is in the fall. This will ensure your system is ready to perform reliably, no matter the temperature outside. If it has been years since your last furnace tune-up, schedule an appointment with us immediately.
What could go wrong if I don’t have furnace maintenance?
Outside of unexpected and costly breakdowns, shortened service life, and lost energy efficiency driving up your bills, a furnace without routine, professional attention can become a safety hazard. Neglected furnaces can result in gas leaks, fire hazards, electrical issues, poor ventilation of carbon monoxide, and more.
How can maintenance save me money on repairs?
The point of annual maintenance is as much to catch developing problems while they’re small as it is to make minor tune-ups and adjustments. When a part gets worn down, it puts added strain on everything else instead of just making the furnace malfunction.
That can mean that when it fails completely and a technician takes a look, they may find that critical parts of your system have prematurely aged that will need replacement.
