Many people don’t realize the importance of performing routine maintenance for their heating and air conditioning system. In general, you should have your unit inspected and maintained at least once a year. You can provide maintenance in the fall for your heater and in the spring for your air conditioner to ensure they are functioning at optimal performance when you need them the most. Our team provides maintenance plans to residential and commercial customers.
HVAC maintenance involves a variety of services. Our technicians will:
- Clean the evaporator and condenser coil
- Inspect the electrical components
- Remove debris or dirt buildup from the outdoor unit
- Adjust and check the thermostat
- Inspect the system for air leaks or cracks
- Clean and inspect the burner system
- Monitor the refrigerant levels
We will also conduct a check of your compressor voltage and amperage, and perform other cleaning and repairs as needed. Our team knows that having your heater break down in the middle of winter, or your air conditioner go out during the hottest day of summer, is frustrating and stressful. By performing routine maintenance, you can enjoy a fully functional HVAC system all year long.
Understanding the Benefits of Proper HVAC Maintenance
Maintaining your heating and air conditioning system has many benefits. While it may seem unnecessary to pay for maintenance when there are no glaring issues with your system, it is actually cost-effective to provide annual or seasonal maintenance. By inspecting the system on a regular basis, professional technicians can notice small issues caused by wear and tear, and fix them before they turn into major problems.
Furthermore, HVAC maintenance can provide immediate advantages for your home or business, including:
- Improved performance
- Increased energy efficiency
- Lower utility bills
- Greater thermostat control
- Improved indoor air quality
A dirty, clogged, broken, or cracked HVAC system will not effectively heat or cool your home or business. It will waste energy as the system runs harder to create a comfortable indoor environment. By having the system cleaned, repaired, and inspected regularly, you can help the system function more smoothly, letting you have lower energy bills each month.
HVAC Maintenance Can Protect Your Respiratory Health
Poor indoor air quality is caused by harmful particles entering your home or business’s indoor air supply. Clogged filters or leaky ducts may not be able to adequately block these particles, putting your family and employees at risk for health problems. These may include asthma, allergies, pulmonary disorders, and respiratory infections.
Harmful particles include pollen, dust, chemical fumes, bacteria, viruses, smoke, and mold. Over time, your air conditioner or heater may become corroded. It will not function effectively, and may let these dangerous particles into your air supply. By cleaning, repairing, and replacing the necessary parts on a routine basis, you can protect your home or business from poor indoor air quality. It is also necessary to clean or seal the duct system, which transports the air to individual rooms in your building.
