4 Reasons For A HVAC Spring Tune Up
The Early Bird Beats the Heat with a Spring HVAC Tune Up!
Right now is the best time to schedule a tune-up for your central heat and air-conditioning unit before the hot weather hits. Don’t wait until it’s the height of summer! Stress to your HVAC unit can cause it to fail and you’ll be left sweltering in your home until you can get it repaired. Instead, schedule an appointment with Same Day Service Plumbing today to ensure your a/c will do its job well and will run like a champ when you need it the most.
Aside from the obvious discomfort that comes from a nonfunctioning HVAC during hot and humid months, there are other good reasons to take preventative measures.
When HVAC units have been ignored or allowed to run without oversight over time, they are more likely to break down when put the test. The largest strain on your equipment will be when temperatures are relentlessly high over a period of several days or even weeks. It stands to reason that these peak times will also put a strain on your HVAC repair contractor who will be handling the frantic calls of other customers having the same issues as you. Chances are the wait time to service your equipment will be longer during that peak period, and your expense will be greater, especially if you require attention after business hours or on weekends and holidays.
Routine HVAC maintenance performed annually can translate into lower energy bills. An air-conditioning unit that doesn’t run efficiently takes more energy to keep your home or business cool. Just because you can’t see or hear an obvious problem doesn’t mean you don’t have one. Your HVAC may be compromised without your even knowing.
Lack of routine maintenance is the main reason HVACs fail. The large problems start small. What may seem insignificant, such as dirt or rust, can cause your a/c unit to run inefficiently, which takes a toll on the unit itself over time. Its lifespan will likely be shortened, and those small factors can turn into big issues, requiring major repairs or even replacement when small equipment failures that haven’t been attended to properly cause major malfunctions.
During a HVAC tune up, your contractor will likely inspect the entire system. First on his or her to-do list should be to clean the unit’s coils, as even a tiny bit of dirt on the coils can cut your a/c unit’s efficiency and shorten its life. In addition, your contractor will clean and drain your HVAC unit’s condensate line, lubricate any moving mechanical parts, clean the blower parts, check the fuel connections, replace the air filter, check the thermostat controls and the system’s wiring, inspect the surrounding ductwork, remove any debris around the outside unit, check the pressure levels and replace fluids, if need be.
