Spring is a great time to schedule a tune-up for your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. Seasonal HVAC maintenance ensures that each component of your heat pump or air conditioner performs properly and that the system operates efficiently as a whole. A spring HVAC tune-up saves energy, improves indoor comfort and prolongs the service life of your system.
Importance of Seasonal Maintenance
According to the Department of Energy, neglecting maintenance causes performance to decline and energy use to increase. Keeping filters clean can reduce the system’s energy usage by as much as 15%. Maintenance reduces the potential for breakdowns. In addition, most heating and air conditioning equipment manufacturers require maintenance to keep warranties valid.
Elements of HVAC Maintenance
There are several tasks that homeowners can do to maintain HVAC equipment, including cleaning or changing filters, keeping ductwork grilles clean and clearing vegetation from around the outdoor unit. However, a licensed HVAC contractor is trained to calibrate and clean sensitive components of the system, including:
- Check refrigerant levels.
- Clean condensate system.
- Check electrical wiring, connections and amperage.
- Calibrate thermostat.
- Clean condenser and evaporator coils.
- Adjust blower components.
- Lubricate moving parts.
- Test pressure in ducted systems.
- Ensure system cycles on and off properly.
Benefits of Maintenance
If problems are found during a maintenance session, taking care of them as soon as they are found lowers the potential for a costly breakdown later. Maintenance helps your system perform efficiently. You will have peace of mind knowing that your indoor environment will be comfortable when you need it most.
