What Does an HVAC Maintenance Check Include?

Nov 29 ,2017

HVAC Maintenance CheckYou’ve probably heard that keeping your HVAC equipment in tip-top shape is a proactive way to save money and energy, but do you know what heating experts look for in a regular maintenance check?

When you hire a team of professionals to conduct an HVAC examination, here are some of the things they are evaluating:

  • The Thermostat’s Accuracy
    When you set your thermostat to a certain temperature, it should be able to maintain that temperature comfortably without wasting excess energy when you leave.
  • Your System’s Electrical Connections
    The HVAC experts will ensure that your connections are secure by examining voltage readings.
  • The Status of Your Air Filters
    Dirty air filters can taint your air quality and reduce air flow. Therefore, the technicians will determine whether or not yours need to be replaced.
  • The Cleanliness of Your Outdoor Units
    Because these units are outside, leaves, dirt, and other forms of debris can get lodged inside. HVAC examiners will remove any obstructions so the system runs smoothly.
  • Your System’s Fans
    Sometimes your HVAC system’s fans will become damaged. Technicians will examine all of the fans to make sure they are doing their jobs well and let you know if you need to replace any.
  • The Refrigerant Levels
    A lack or excess of refrigerant can be wasteful, so those need to be checked at least once a year.
  • The General Effectiveness of Your HVAC System
    Most importantly, a technician will be able to determine whether or not your system is operating correctly. This will help you decide if repairs or replacements need to be made.
