There’s an old saying out there that says something along the lines of, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” While this may not be 100% true in all cases, we believe that there is some truth to this idea that we can prevent pain and discomfort by preventing bad things from happening before they happen.

For this reason we are happy to offer furnace and air conditioner tune-ups to our customers at an affordable cost. These tune-ups provide the recommended warranty coverage to your furnace or air conditioner so that they will function correctly all season long.

Imagine the potential for pain and frustration when your furnace fails on the coldest night of the year, or worse, on Christmas or New Year’s day. While this won’t happen every year, a regular tune-up will make sure you and your family are comfortable in your home all season long.

Check out this video below for an example of a potential failure point on a furnace:

Hi! My name’s Tim. I’m one of First Call Jewel’s HVAC service technicians and today we’re going to change out the ignition component device for this gas furnace. It is reading higher then normal per the manufacture’s specifications. All modern gas furnaces are electronic ignitioned. There are no standing pilots any longer for energy efficiency reasons.

This is our ignition device. It’s out of manufacture’s specifications which is an indicator that it’s nearing its end of life and rather then have an issue during the heating season where it could potentially fail on the coldest night of the year or a holiday, we’re going to go ahead and change that out for the client so they can have a worry free and have good piece of mind as to their heating system working properly and efficiently for them.

So here as you can see here’s our old and new ignitors as kind of a side by side comparison. The old ignitor here, you can kind of see some deterioration there on the left hand side in the center which is an indicator that that will be the potential failure point. It’s very dull looking and the new one here has a lot of sparkle to it, a lot of shine. So it gives you that definitely new appearance. And all of the element here is completely the same so it is ready to run 100% efficient for the client with no problems further on down the road. We’ll just go ahead and get that installed for them.

Alright, here we are. After we’ve installed our new ignition component device we’re just going to watch it fire up and make sure everything works correctly. Good glow on that! All of our burners have ignited, now we know everything is working just as it should.
