Fall Heating TipsThe air is beginning to cool, and the leaves are starting to turn. Fall is officially here. It’s that sweet spot where the outdoor temperature is just right allowing for open windows and a quiet HVAC system. While your heating and cooling bills are low, it’s a great time to be thinking ahead. Preventative maintenance on your HVAC system is a must to ensure a warm and cozy winter season indoors. Allied Services, Inc. is here to help homeowners in Dayton and the surrounding Ohio area prepare for winter with a furnace tune-up this fall. Everyone knows preventative maintenance is a good thing, but it’s easily pushed to the back burner. Here are a few reminders of how tune-ups can save you in the long run.

Money SavingsLower the thermostat this winter

Most HVAC tune-ups are less than $100 and can catch costly issues before they get worse. Just like an oil change in your car, an HVAC tune-up promotes longevity and efficiency in your heating and cooling units. Tune-ups are a win-win by saving money in costly repairs and energy bills.


Routine cleaning is performed during a tune-up. Carbon soot, water vapor, and carbon dioxide filter through the furnace combustion chamber generating heat. Removing loose material and soot improves safety and function. Vent and duct cleaning is an additional service outside of a tune-up, but it’s well worth it for fire prevention and air quality improvement.


A trained professional can check for furnace leaks or holes that can release carbon monoxide exhaust. Carbon monoxide is a huge safety hazard and must be taken seriously. It takes a professional to detect potential hazards to keep your family safe. Take advantage of this beautiful fall weather, and begin thinking ahead toward winter. Preventative maintenance is a money-saving step that keeps your family safe and healthy. Check out our specials for seasonal deals on your heating and cooling needs.
