Furnace Maintenance

Routine Furnace Maintenance in Columbus, Dayton & Cincinnati

Although furnace maintenance does indeed help prevent furnace problems during the winter, in addition to keeping your heating bills in check and making your equipment perform longer, failing to have it performed doesn’t mean it’s going to break down during the winter. Preventative maintenance saves you the stress of an unexpected expense happening at the worst times. Imagine having to spend your holiday budget on a new furnace unexpectedly!

Having heating system maintenance performed regularly will increase your heater’s efficiency in addition to its service lifespan. Who doesn’t want to make their furnace heat their home better for longer? No one likes replacing an expensive heating system! In addition to all the benefits we’ve already mentioned, there’s another benefit. For homeowners who have new systems, maintenance is required to keep the warranty valid.

4 Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

When it comes to the HVAC equipment in your home, there’s absolutely no substitute for professional maintenance. In addition to making your expensive equipment last longer and run better, furnace-tune-ups have all sorts of benefits.


All mechanical systems undergo wear and tear over time. Your furnace is undoubtedly no exception. However, a homeowner can reduce this damage with maintenance. Scheduling a regular tune-up for your furnace keeps your system running as needed. Our furnace techs will verify that everything is ready to go for winter. We address potential issues before they evolve into big problems. You’re far less likely to lose heat during the cold months because of a quick, painless, and affordable visit from our furnace maintenance expert.


Furnaces that aren’t adequately maintained use more energy than those regularly inspected and cared for—this lack of care results in higher energy bills. However, having a furnace tech check your HVAC system can lower home heating bills. Without regular care from an expert, furnaces fill up with dust, and their parts begin to wear down. They need more energy to push heating to your living spaces when this happens. Having our expert technician come over to inspect your furnace as part of a fall furnace tune-up helps you rest assured, knowing your heating system is ready for an entire winter of energy-efficient operation.


How long do you think it would last if you never took your vehicle to a mechanic for an oil change? Failing to have your furnace inspected by a Five Star Home Services technician is a similarly bad idea. Routine furnace maintenance can help your furnace last longer and run better as it ages. And yet this is merely one of the ways a fall furnace tune-up from Five Star Home Services can save you money in the long run. If you look at furnace replacement costs, you’ll see why we say being proactive pays.


Your home heating system needs to be checked at least once each year to ensure it can still operate safely. One of the biggest safety concerns is the heat exchanger. A cracked heat exchanger can lead to carbon monoxide leaking. Carbon Monoxide, CO, is a colorless, odorless gas that’s deadly. If this gas gets into your home’s air, you’re in serious trouble. It’s known as the “Silent Killer” for a reason. Because of this, carbon monoxide is not to be trifled with. If you suspect something’s wrong with your furnace’s heat exchanger, call the fire department and then give us a call.

What’s Included in Furnace Maintenance & Furnace Tune-Ups?

Five Star Home Services offers comprehensive furnace maintenance services to ensure the safety and optimal functioning of your heating system. During your furnace’s annual tune-up, our experienced technician meticulously examines your furnace to guarantee its proper operation. Our thorough inspection process includes assessing crucial safety and performance benchmarks such as carbon monoxide levels, satisfactory flue venting, gas line component condition, safety shut-off equipment, heat exchanger condition, system filter and blower motor condition, as well as your furnace’s flame sensor and temperature rise. Trust Five Star Home Services for top-notch furnace maintenance to keep your heating system running smoothly and safely.

What Does a Furnace Cleaning Include?

Once your Five Star HVAC technician confirms that your furnace is operating safely, they should also clean your furnace to maintain its performance and improve the air quality in your home. We offer maintenance packages with different levels of cleaning during your furnace tune-up, which can be beneficial if anyone in your family has allergies or asthma. However, regardless of the package, your technician should always clean your furnace and its key components. These include the flame sensor, which can prevent your furnace from turning on if it collects too much soot. During the furnace tune-up, your HVAC technician should also inspect and clean the plenums, metal boxes that help provide air to your system and distribute it throughout your living spaces, to remove any mold, insulation, or debris. Additionally, they should clean the furnace cabinet, which accumulates dust and debris throughout the year, potentially affecting your system’s performance.
