All the experts agree that you should get your A/C and heating systems maintained regularly, whether it’s a commercial HVAC service or residential HVAC service. So what happens during an HVAC service? And is HVAC maintenance necessary?

What Happens During A/C Maintenance?

Air conditioning maintenance includes the following checks.

  • Checking the controls work properly

  • Cleaning or changing the air filter

  • Thermostat calibration

  • Electrical connection check and tightening

  • Lubrication

  • Clearing the condensate drain line

We carry out any small repairs that your system needs now to stop them turning into bigger issues down the road.

What Happens During Heating Maintenance?

Here’s a rundown on what happens during an HVAC service for your heater, water heater or furnace.

Heater Maintenance

We check that there are no leaks, inside or outside. Then we check the following are correct.

  • Thermostat calibration

  • Terminal connections, tightening them when necessary

  • Refrigerant levels

  • Amps on the compressor and heater

  • Condenser fan motor capacitor

  • Starter contacts, relays and switches

  • Blower motor capacity

  • Condenser fan blade

  • Temperature split (the difference between the air coming in and going out)

Our heater maintenance technician checks for general wear and tear as well as rust. Another important step is to clean the evaporator coil and any dusty or dirty elements that slow down your system and pose a fire hazard.

Water Heater Maintenance

This is what happens when we come for water heater maintenance. We flush the tank to get rid of any mineral deposits and have a look for corrosion. Then we’ll check all of these.

  • Temperature

  • Anode rods (the metal rods)

  • Insulation

  • Any other components

If your water heater is gas, we’ll also make sure that the burner is functioning correctly.

Furnace Maintenance

Our technician cleans out the blower so any allergens or dirt that makes your system inefficient is gone. Here’s what we inspect.

  • Air intake grilles

  • Vent system

  • Heat exchanger

  • Blower motor

Is HVAC Maintenance Necessary?

In a word, yes. Without regular maintenance, your HVAC system’s performance will start to go downhill from six months after it’s installed.

Everything needs to be checked and cleaned so that it’s powerful and running at 100%. And this is something a trained professional needs to do.

What Happens If You Don’t Get Maintenance For Your HVAC Equipment?

The consequences of not maintaining your HVAC systems can be disastrous. Neglected HVAC equipment not only burns through your budget because it’s so inefficient, it’s also a fire risk.

HVAC appliances are the number one cause of fires in the US, quite extraordinary when you consider that that’s above candles and smoking.
