4 Things to Expect During an HVAC Tune-Up

Both your heating and cooling systems need maintenance checks every year. We recommend scheduling your annual tune-up in autumn for the heating system and in spring for the cooling system. What happens during an HVAC tune-up? We’ve summarized the four most important things to expect below.

1. Thorough Cleaning

Expect your HVAC company to thoroughly clean the internal components of your heating and cooling system. It’s important to get that gunk out because dust and debris can decrease the efficiency of a system. Components that may need cleaning include the condenser, the blower compartment, the evaporator coil, and the condensate drain.

2. Optimization

A reputable HVAC company also takes steps to optimize your heating and cooling system during maintenance. After running for a season, your unit likely has loose electrical connections, dry moving parts, or other issues that could lead to the need for repair if they aren’t addressed. During an HVAC maintenance appointment, we’ll tighten loose electrical connections, lubricate moving parts, and optimize any other components that may be faltering.

3. Safety Check

There are plenty of safety issues that can arise over a season of running your HVAC unit. Potential issues include debris buildup inside the system, cracks, and gas leaks. Thus, safety checks are an essential part of HVAC maintenance. We check for cracks in the system, gas leaks, carbon monoxide, and issues with debris. Any problems will be remedied for the safety of your household.

4. Replacement of Parts That Have Gone Bad

If we find worn parts inside your unit during our inspection, we’ll replace them before they completely fail on you. Replacing components when they show signs of wear and tear helps to prevent expensive repairs to your HVAC unit. It can also prevent your unit from breaking down on a particularly hot or cold day.
