HVAC Maintenance Services in Valdosta, Thomasville, and Surrounding Areas in South Georgia & North Florida
You might not realize the value of heating and AC maintenance. However, scheduling annual HVAC tuneups is the key to worry-free heating and cooling. HVAC warranties also require you to perform regular system maintenance for good reason. Preventive maintenance keeps your HVAC in the best operating condition possible.
What’s Involved in a Maintenance Visit?
We recommend AC maintenance in spring and heating maintenance in fall so that you’ll be ready for the seasons ahead. Our service technicians will thoroughly clean and inspect the system. General tasks include:
- Checking the thermostat
- Lubricating moving parts
- Checking the condensate drain
- Tightening electrical controls
The service technicians will check the air filter although this is a task you should undertake regularly. Specific to heating, if you have a gas furnace, our service technicians will check all connections. They will ensure there is no potential for a fire or carbon monoxide leak.
Heating Season Checklist
Clean and adjust pilot
Value: The furnace won’t stay on if the pilot is damaged or dirty.
Check the gas line from the furnace shut-off valve to the burner for leaks
Value: Undetected gas leaks can be deadly.
Check the combustion air openings
Value: Blocked or restricted combustion air openings can be dangerous.
Inspect the flue pipe
Value: Flue pipe corrosion or leaks can be dangerous.
Secure All Panels
Value: Loose panels can increase energy usage and can also be dangerous.
Check the defrost timer
Value: A defrost timer that is not working properly can cause heat loss and shorten compressor life.
Check reversing valve
Value: A malfunctioning reversing valve can waste energy and affect heating and cooling.
Check the auxiliary heat strips
Value: Damaged heat strips can cause heat loss or increase electricity costs.
Inspect the heat exchanger for cracks and deterioration.
Value: Heat exchanges can develop cracks with age. If they exist, there is a risk of serious illness from toxic fumes emitted.
Cooling Season Checklist
Check the refrigerant charge
Value: A low or high refrigerant charge can easily go unnoticed. This can increase operating costs and can cause the compressor shutdown.
Replace the air filter (customer’s option)
Value: A restricted air filter can cause your air conditioning unit to waste energy and shorten the compressor’s life.
Check the thermostat
Value: Improperly calibrated thermostats allow the unit to run longer than necessary. Every degree your air conditioning operates below 78 degrees can add 5% to 8% to the cost of cooling.
Inspect and test the controls and safeties
Value: Controls and safeties that do not function properly can increase operating costs and cause other components to fail.
Check condensate drain for clogs
Value: Algae can block a condensate drain which can cause expensive water damage. Fungi spores could form in the pan and spread through the system.
Check and record temperature and pressure readings
Value: An accurate record of your equipment’s vital data can indicate potential problems. We will keep a record which may reduce unnecessary service calls.
Inspect relays, contactors, and wiring
Value: Worn contactors and loose wire connections can lead to motor or compressor failure and untimely downtime.
Inspect ductwork for leaks and proper installation
Value: Duct problems can occur at any time after installation. Damaged ducts will increase operating costs. Duct leaks account for about 20% of energy waste from air conditioning systems.
