Routine maintenance can reduce the need for air conditioning repairs and help prevent other HVAC issues. It will also help ensure the system works efficiently and keeps you comfortable all-year-round. With regular, proper care and maintenance, your equipment will also last longer.
Here’s what to expect the first time a professional visits your home for HVAC maintenance.
Complete inspection. Usually, the first thing that HVAC technicians do is make a thorough inspection of the system. They’ll look for problems or any damaged components. A good professional will tell you about possible hazards and help you eliminate the risk as soon as possible. Your technician will check the electrical connections, indoor and outdoor units, condensate drain line, filters and thermostat. The goal of this service is to prepare your HVAC system for the upcoming season.
Detect issues and formulate solutions. Skilled HVAC installation contractors will immediately know if there’s something wrong with your equipment. After your technician determines what the problem is, they’ll formulate the ideal solution and fix the issue. If there are problems with your equipment, you may need to purchase new parts, depending on how serious they are. Your technician may also need to return for another visit if they can’t perform the repair on the same day as the inspection.
Clean the system. A clean HVAC system will cool and heat your home more effectively. Over time, dirt, dust and other debris can build up in the equipment, which can restrict airflow. Your technician will do a cleanup during the maintenance service. You’ll notice an immediate difference in your comfort and the system’s performance after this task is performed.
Answer your queries and provide a report. Don’t hesitate to ask your technician questions if you have any. They should be able to address concerns and queries following the inspection. A reliable technician will have no issue explaining why they’re recommending a particular solution for your equipment. They should also provide you with a written report about the condition of your unit, indicating whether it requires major repairs.
