Your HVAC system is the largest factor in keeping your home comfortable. That’s why forgetting to have it serviced regularly — at least once a year and ideally twice — can lead to huge problems you are likely to regret. Getting a service check will help prevent your HVAC system from breaking down unexpectedly as well as keep it working as efficiently as possible.
Your HVAC service will include an inspection of all components to make sure none of them are deteriorating. Parts that show wear and tear will be replaced to protect you from facing larger-scale, more expensive problems down the road.
You will also be helping reduce your energy usage when you get your HVAC system inspected. All the refrigerant levels will be inspected and each role player will be checked to make sure everything is running at optimal levels. This means lower utility bills with savings that can easily offset the cost of a maintenance check.
Because we tend to take our HVAC systems for granted, it can be easy to forget about having an HVAC system checked out. If you have not had yours inspected in over a year, you should schedule one immediately. Summer has arrived in Portland and you want to be sure that you stay comfortable in your house.
Here are a few of the other things that are performed during an annual maintenance check:
- Moving parts lubricated
- Gas and oil connections secured
- Electrical connections tightened
- Condenser coil cleaned
- Blower components adjusted
- System controls checked
