First HVAC Maintenance Visit: What Homeowners Should Expect
Routine HVAC maintenance is essential in keeping your heating and cooling systems working properly, avoiding expensive repairs and extending the life of your unit. If you’re a new homeowner or have just purchased an HVAC system, you may be wondering what exactly happens during a maintenance visit from an HVAC tech.
Here Cooper Brothers, Inc., the most trusted local company for air conditioning and home furnace repair in the area, explains what you need to know about HVAC maintenance visits.
The first thing the technician will do is thoroughly check all of your HVAC components. This includes the indoor and outdoor units, electrical wiring, thermostats, condensate drain line and filter. Special attention to heating components is given every fall, while spring maintenance checks will focus more on your cooling system. The goal is to make sure your HVAC unit is prepared for the demands of the upcoming season.
Heating and AC repair techs will also clean the evaporator coil, condensate drain, blower compartment, condenser and other vital components of your HVAC system. Your outdoor unit may be filled with leaves and other debris that could affect its operation, and dirty ductwork may also need to be cleaned to enhance your indoor air quality and your HVAC system’s overall efficiency.
Tune-ups are an important aspect of every HVAC maintenance check. An AC unit, for example, requires a tune-up on a regular basis to maintain proper operation. Moving parts in the system must also be lubricated regularly, and other components must be adjusted for efficiency. With this aspect of HVAC maintenance, you can rest assured that your unit is ready to operate normally.
