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
Value: The furnace won’t stay on if the pilot is damaged or dirty.
Value: Undetected gas leaks can be deadly.
Value: Blocked or restricted combustion air openings can be dangerous.
Value: Flue pipe corrosion or leaks can be dangerous.
Value: Loose panels can increase energy usage and can also be dangerous.
Value: A defrost timer that is not working properly can cause heat loss and shorten compressor life.
Value: A reversing valve that is not operating properly can waste energy affect heating and cooling.
Value: Heat strips that are not operating properly can cause heat loss or increase electricity costs.
Cooling Season Checklist
Value: A low or high refrigerant charge can easily go unnoticed. This can increasing operating costs and can cause the compressor shutdown.
Value: A restricted air filter can cause your air conditioning unit to waste energy and shorten the compressor’s life.
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.
Value: Controls and safeties that do not function properly can increase operating costs and cause other components to fail.
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.
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.
Value: Worn contactors and loose wire connections can lead to motor or compressor failure and untimely down time.
ValueDuct problems can occur any time after installation. Damaged ducts will increase operating costs. Duct leaks account for about 20% of energy waste from air conditioning systems.
Our service technicians will ensure the system is performing properly before leaving the job site.
