Maintenance of your heating and cooling unit is essential to its longevity. You wouldn’t want your HVAC system to unexpectedly break down when you need it the most – and pay higher bills for serious repair costs. Sometimes, there might be hidden issues that aren’t visible. It’s better to schedule a professional tune-up from the Air Tech of Pasadena team now than risk the chance of a malfunction in the future!
What Happens During A Heater Tune-Up?
While a tune-up can look different for everyone depending on the situation, generally, a heater tune-up consists of a trained technician inspecting your cooling and heating systems. A typical maintenance check is a relatively simple and fast process: your technician will test the overall function of the unit, check parts that are prone to malfunctioning and make adjustments as necessary. Some other things that may happen during your visit include:
- Replacing the air filter or cleaning a reusable filter
- Lubricating motor parts
- Ensuring connections are secure
- Inspecting for damage to internal components
- Performing minor repairs
- Cleaning fan blades, coils, or more
Seasonal Furnace Tune-Up
Seasonal furnace tune-ups are important for weather changes – for instance, you wouldn’t want your HVAC system blowing hot air when it’s 90 degrees outside! A preseason inspection will check for frayed wires/corroded electrical contacts on your heat pump, air conditioning or anything that may hinder your cooling and heating systems. Since HVAC technicians tend to be extra busy during seasonal changes, it’s best to schedule an appointment ahead of time to ensure that your systems are checked.
Preventive maintenance for your HVAC system is vital for all homes, especially if you’re moving into a new home or haven’t had one done in a while. You should engage in preventive maintenance for multiple reasons, with some of the benefits being immediate while others are long-term.
ACs, heaters, and all HVAC systems function best when regularly maintained. Ideally, you want your systems to last a long time without purchasing a new one or paying for expensive repairs. Regular maintenance will ensure that your systems run smoothly and for the most prolonged duration possible.
This might be something that most people don’t think about, but safety is another crucial reason why you should engage in routine maintenance. Other than the money, Faulty systems can also come at the expense of you and your family’s personal safety. For example, electrical HVAC systems could short-circuit and cause a fire, a crack in the heat exchanger of your furnace will cause carbon monoxide to leak.
You want your system to be as energy efficient as possible because it consumes less power to maintain the heating or cooling in your home. A furnace that appears to be running fine could actually consume more energy than needed to heat your home, increasing your utility bills by a huge portion! Regular maintenance rids you of this issue.
