Avoid HVAC Repair With Regular Maintenance

Jun 10, 2014

Keeping your home's HVAC system in check requires regularly scheduled maintenance and servicing. While you can do some things on your own to maintain your HVAC system, hiring a professional HVAC repair service company to keep your system up-to-date may help you extend the lifetime of your HVAC unit while reducing the need for costly repairs. The following are a few examples of what an HVAC service provider might do during a regularly scheduled maintenance check-up:

  • Check Thermostat: an HVAC repair technician will start by checking the thermostat to make sure temperatures are being measured accurately and that optimum efficiency is being met.
  • Tighten Electrical Wiring: Over time, electrical wiring can become loose or faulty. Staying on top of regular maintenance can prevent serious electrical problems and reduce the chance of damaging major system components.
  • Inspect Drains: The condensation drains connected to your AC, furnace, or heat pump can affect the level of moisture in your home. Unclogging drains can help prevent water damage and humidity in the home.
  • Test System Controls: Ensuring safe operation of your HVAC system means regularly checking the controls to be sure everything is running safely. An HVAC repair technician will ensure that everything is starting, operating, and turning off correctly in your system.

As you try to keep your HVAC system operating efficiently and avoid costly repairs, regular maintenance check-ups can help you preserve the life and efficiency of your unit.
