BENEFITS OF PROFESSIONAL HEATING SYSTEM TUNE-UPS
Even if your heater is working just fine, it’s best to get a professional heating tune-up annually. Especially when you have had your furnace or boiler for a couple of years already, regular furnace tune-up can help prevent it from failing and needing heater repairs or even replacement later. During your heating system tune-up, the HVAC professional will ensure that your heater is working safely and efficiently by running a few tests on its overall functionality.
LOWER UTILITY BILLS
Old or dirty heaters can be much more expensive to operate than newer models or heating systems getting regular heater maintenance. Not only will their technology usually mean a lower energy efficiency, but the system itself will also deteriorate with time and require more energy for the same output. That is especially the case if your vents are also not well maintained. Therefore, getting a newer heating system or regular HVAC maintenance can be a way to lower your energy bill.
PREVENT A SYSTEM FAILURE
In the long run, you’ll save more money by having regular heater tune-ups as opposed to waiting until something breaks down to fix it. During your heating system check-up, our HVAC technicians will clean and check heater parts to help prevent a malfunction requiring costly repairs or even heater replacement altogether. We even offer a premium subscription for regular HVAC maintenance.
Similar to how furnace maintenance helps catch an issue before it happens, regular heating system check-ups also helps ensure that all the electrical components are in safe working order. With Hurley & David, you have the reassurance that an HVAC professional will perform connection checks during a heater tune-up to help keep your home safe.

Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
