Goooood mooorning Mil-wau-KEE! (did my Robin Williams impression from Good Morning Vietnam translate through text?) It’s Jason from Capital Heating, Cooling and Electric. Today, I’m going to tackle a question that’s been floating around the internets-
“Is a furnace tune-up necessary?”
Let’s break it down. . .
How a Well-Tuned Furnace Benefits You
The point of a tune-up is to prolong the life of your furnace and save you money on energy bills, but not every company really puts their back into it.
We don’t believe in cutting corners or doing the bare minimum.
Here are Capital, we only offer a Furnace Beyondification, which is exactly what it sounds like. We go beyond your normal expectations of what a “tune-up” is, and spend extra time to make sure the job is done right.
That means looking at every single piece of your system and trying to make it like new again.
Capital’s Four Furnace Factors
When you get a Capital Furnace Beyondification, we achieve four key goals for you:
- Optimal Performance – Capital always tries to get your furnace back to “like new condition.
- Prolonged Lifespan – You get the most out of your furnace by extending its life.
- Energy Efficiency – You’ll love saving you money by using less energy!
- Safety – From gas leaks to ventilation, this is most important part of our job.

Overall System Performance Evaluation

When To Get A “Way-Beyond-A-Tune-Up” Capital Furnace Beyondification
It is never too early to have us Beyondify your furnace, but there’s definitely a time that’s too late.
Some people are more prepared than others, so they get it done at the end of summer.
Others get it done right at the beginning of the Fall season.
But those who wait beyond that often have to deal with a breakdown or repair instead. How prepared do YOU want to be?
Why Annual Maintenance Is Best
If you join our Capital Cares Club, you get two Beyondifications every year (AC and Furnace) and tons of other benefits, so you have peace of mind year round that Capital has your back.
