Regular HVAC maintenance is the best way to prevent future problems and unwanted costs.
Regular HVAC Maintenance helps to avoid a system failure in severe hot or cold weather when you need it most, and it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
It is best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall.
HVAC Maintenance Checklist
Check the thermostat settings: Installing a programmable thermostat is a great way to ensure your home's HVAC system cools and heats the home at the most efficient and opportune time.
Check, clean or replace the air filter: This should be a part of the regular service, but if you don't check or change your filters yourself, the HVAC Maintenance contractor will show you how to perform this essential task yourself.
Tighten all electrical connections: Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.
Lubricate moving parts: Moving parts without the right amount of lubrication increase friction and decrease your system's overall efficiency.
Inspect the condensate drain: A plugged drain can cause water damage, high humidity levels and possible mold or bacteria growth.
Check and refill the refrigerant charge if necessary: Not having the right amount of cooling refrigerant can lead to a damaged air compressor.
Inspect coil and cabinet: Clean as needed.
Check combustion blower housing for lint and debris: Clean as necessary.
Check all gas connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger: Leaky or disconnected fuel lines or connections present both a safety risk as well as make a system less efficient overall.
