Preventive maintenance for your HVAC system is key to keeping your home at ideal comfort levels all year round. Just like a car needs oil changes and tune-ups to stay working properly and get the most mileage, your HVAC system needs service checks to stay working as efficiently as possible.
During a preventive maintenance, a certified HVAC specialist will come to your house to inspect all the elements of your air system. In the A/C, the most important component is the evaporator coil as it is the part responsible for cooling the air. It will be checked for any damage and cleaned to ensure that it is operating efficiently. The refrigerant levels and blower components will also be adjusted so that the air can be distributed properly.
The inspection of the heating system is particularly important because the oil and gas connections get checked. Small leaks can be hard to detect but long-term exposure can create severe health hazards. The heat exchanger and burner are also cleaned and checked for damage to guarantee they are operating safely and efficiently.
The ideal time to get your preventive maintenance performed is right before summer or winter, the months that you will be using your HVAC system the most. This will prevent any unexpected breakdowns caused by mounting problems.
However, there is no bad time to have your HVAC system checked. If you haven’t had one performed in over a year, you need to schedule one immediately. It will help you avoid expensive repairs later on and will get your utility bills as low as possible.
