Regular maintenance on your heating and air conditioning unit is especially important. Just like your car, your heating and cooling system is an intricate piece of equipment that gets a lot of “mileage”.
Over time, it encounters wear and tear with its many moving parts. Also, like your vehicle, your HVAC unit will not run at its best when it’s overlooked and worn down.
Our Aire Serv HVAC techs share all the details on system tune-ups so you are prepared when a licensed technician comes to your home.
Here are some of the most frequently asked tune-up questions from homeowners.
What Does HVAC Tune-up Include?
Generally speaking, our HVAC tune-ups include: inspections, cleanings, and repair services.
We're sure you're wondering: "does my HVAC need repairs"?
Great question - that is what we'll determine during your HVAC tune up. If we come across any issues, we'll review our recommendations with you.
Most common AC system tune-ups should include:
- Evaluation of the coolant levels and ensuring there are no refrigerant leaks
- Lubrication of all moving parts and tightening of all the electrical connections
- A thorough cleaning of the system, including the condenser coils
- Inspect contractor, capacitor, and condenser fan motor
- Evaluate condition of blower belt and performance of blower motor
- Flush condensate drain so it’s free of clogs
- Full calibration of the thermostat
- Inspection of the ductwork for possible energy loss
Why Should I Get an HVAC Tune-up?
At the end of the day, tune-ups help you avoid unexpected breakdowns.
Beyond this, tune-ups can help:
- Increase the overall lifespan of the unit,
- Increase your comfort level, and
- Help your unit operate more efficiently.
Think of tune-ups like annual wellness checks on your heating and cooling unit. Some homeowners don’t think of them until they aren’t working.
But staying on top of your tune-ups means our Wilmington HVAC service professionals can remedy a potential issue before your unit breaks down.
Unforeseen air conditioning fixes aren’t always cheap. An HVAC tune-up can help you avoid these costs.
