preventive maintenanceYour heating and cooling system is one of the more important features of your home. You likely rely on it to keep your living space nice and comfortable throughout the year. Just like you would have your car regularly serviced, your HVAC system needs such preventive maintenance to work in tip-top shape. The U.S. Department of Energy and HVAC experts both advise scheduling annual pre-season service calls to help ensure maximum efficiency, avoid unnecessary repair jobs and other benefits that come with a well cared for system. Learn more about the perks of keeping up your HVAC system and what you can expect a contractor to do during the check-up.

Benefits of HVAC Preventive Maintenance

  • A well maintained system uses less energy, which saves you money on your monthly utility bills.
  • The life of your system will be extended for as long as possible.
  • Future problems and unnecessary costs are better avoided. 
  • An efficient HVAC system helps create healthier indoor air quality.
  • An HVAC system with reduced energy needs will reduce your home’s carbon footprint.

Maintenance Appointment Checklist

  • All moving parts will be lubricated.
  • The controls of the systems will be looked at to make sure they are working safely and correctly.
  • Every electrical connection gets tightened and the voltage and current gets measured.
  • Your thermostat settings will be examined to make certain they are set to a comfortable, yet energy-saving schedule.
  • The condensate drain will checked out. If it is at all dirty, the contractor will clean it up.
  • If you have a gas-fired heating system, the burner combustion, heat exchanger, gas or oil connections and gas pressure will be inspected to ensure they’re in good condition and operate properly.
  • In your A/C or heat pump, the refrigerant levels will be examined and, if required, adjusted.
  • The evaporator and condenser coils will be cleaned.
  • In any kind of central, forced-air HVAC system, the air handler or blower components will be cleaned and altered.
