WHY A PERIODIC HVAC CHECKUP IS A GREAT IDEA

If you're thinking about getting a periodic HVAC checkup, congratulations. An A/C check can save money on your electricity bill in addition to staving off small issues before they develop into significant problems. Here are some of the things a person can expect from an HVAC maintenance service call.

SYSTEM CHECKS

The technician will examine each component of the system. All of the parts of the thermostat, furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner will be inspected for damage and turned on to ensure they are functioning correctly. A temperature and pressure test will also be carried out as needed. The technician will identify deterioration or other signs of wear in the system's components that might already be causing a problem or likely to create one in the future.

HARD-TO-REACH-CLEANING

In a situation where the system is dirty, the technician will change out the filter if the customer has one available, in addition to cleaning the components of the system that are outside the homeowner's reach. 

ASSESSMENT

If the technician discovers a problem, they'll evaluate it, note it, and discuss it with the customer. Furthermore, the tech will carry out routine fixes such as a belt alignment or tightening of loose wires.

FINAL REPORT

The technician will provide a form that summarizes a detailed list of what they performed. This form should have all of the components that were checked. It also ought to have an assessment of any repairs that may need to be executed or abnormalities the technician might have discovered during the check.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The questions the homeowner might have regarding their unit or their heating and cooling can be discussed. Supposing there is a problem with the unit, the technician will make clear the problem and potential solutions. The finest technicians have been trained to inspect and evaluate the system's challenges and solutions with the customer's best interests in mind.

If the homeowner has a maintenance plan, regular service is included in the plan. If the customer doesn't have a plan, a system check service may be performed for a one-time fee. The majority of clients think the service is worthwhile because it's a small fee to maintain and expensive investment without any problems. There are HVAC warranties that demand that the unit be serviced each year, or else the warranty will become void.

No matter if a unit is warrantied or has a maintenance plan, periodic service is highly recommended by the Department of Energy to promote the unit's absolute best operation.
