Annual air conditioning maintenance is an important task to perform for your Columbia, MD, home as it keeps your system running efficiently. Spring is the best time to schedule an HVAC checkup since it prepares your system for the hard-working summer season ahead.
Why Your System Needs Annual Maintenance
Regular preventive maintenance appointments help keep your HVAC system performing efficiently. Over time, parts wear out and become dirty.
An annual check by one of our certified technicians checks components such as condenser coils, tubes, the blower fan, belts and other moving parts, while also checking controls and tightening all mechanical parts. This work helps prevent small problems from becoming big ones and also ensures that the system is working at peak efficiency.
What Can You Expect From HVAC Maintenance?
Although you can, and should, change the HVAC filter on your own, a professional has the knowledge, experience and tools to check air conditioning system components that you can’t do on your own that will directly affect your overall comfort. When one of our technicians visits, he will do the following:
- Check the thermostat’s accuracy
- Check for sufficient refrigerant and refill, if necessary
- Test for refrigerant leaks
- Measure airflow through the evaporator coil
- Verify the correct control sequences
