Seasonal HVAC Maintenance will Keep Your System Running Smoothly All Year Long

Seasonal HVAC Maintenance will Keep Your System Running Smoothly All Year LongInvesting in seasonal HVAC maintenance will help ensure the heating and cooling system in your Fresno area home runs efficiently, effectively and safely throughout the year. Regular use takes its toll on your HVAC equipment, reducing its energy efficiency, and increasing the chance of unexpected breakdowns and repairs. Scheduling seasonal HVAC maintenance provides many benefits for you and your household. Some of these benefits include:

  • Improved performance from the heating and cooling system
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Lower energy costs
  • Better indoor air quality, which improves the overall health of everyone in the household,
  • Prolong the life of the HVAC equipment
  • Better air circulation
  • Reduction in unexpected repairs
  • Discount on repairs
  • Priority service
  • Peace of mind that the HVAC system is functioning properly and safely,

What to Expect

With seasonal HVAC maintenance, you can expect that a highly qualified and experienced technician will thoroughly inspect your heating and cooling system. He will check the components of the equipment to ensure they’re functioning properly. A few of things on his checklist include:

  • Applying lubrication to moving parts
  • Check thermostat settings
  • Inspect the condensate drain
  • Tighten electrical connections if needed
  • Check system controls
  • Inspect the heat exchanger, gas pressure, burner combustion and fuel connections for the furnace
  • Clean and adjust blower components
  • Clean evaporator and condenser coils for A/Cs and heat pumps
  • Check the levels of the refrigerant and adjust if necessary for A/Cs and heat pumps

Homeowners can help keep their HVAC system running smoothly by simply cleaning or replacing the air filter once a month during the heavy-use seasons. A dirty or clogged filter will make your system work harder and use more energy. This decreases the HVAC system’s performance while increasing energy costs. Keep in mind, however, that even regular filter placement is no substitution for signing a preventive maintenance agreement with a trusted HVAC company, and then you perform the task in conjunction with an annual maintenance plan.
