HVAC maintenance should be done by a professional twice per year to keep it operating effectively and efficiently. This not only helps you stay cooler and comfortable in your home, but it also reduces your energy costs.
One benefit to routine maintenance that is often overlooked is that a professional technician will discover if your unit needs repair or is at risk of a breakdown and fix it before your HVAC unit stops working. If you’ve ever suffered through a southern summer without air conditioning, you’ll know how important that is!
Routine HVAC maintenance includes:
- Thorough cleaning of coils, drains, and elements
- Inspecting connections, motor operations, and thermostat functionality
- Monitoring refrigerant pressure
- Testing safety controls
- Lubricating moving parts
These are just a handful of routine HVAC maintenance actions that will extend the life of your heating and cooling system and cut down on expensive repairs.
