Furnace Test & Tune Program

The Test and Tune Program is implemented by Washtenaw County in partnership with the DTE Energy Efficiency Assistance Program. We provide a free furnace tune-up that ensures your furnace will run more efficiently, last longer, and operate safely. Other potential work may include:

  • Furnace repairs
  • Installation of new energy-saving programmable thermostat
  • Installation of water-saving faucet and shower aerators
  • Replacement of unsafe or inefficient furnaces (quantities are limited!)
