All homeowners need to be aware of what an HVAC tune-up is and how it can help their system run more efficiently. By having a tune-up performed at least once a year, you can help your system run smoothly and avoid costly repairs in the future. Here is what you need to know about tune-ups and how to schedule one for your home.
The Importance of an HVAC Tune-Up
Your HVAC system is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home. It’s responsible for keeping you cool or warm all year long, and if it’s not functioning properly, it can lead to big problems. That’s why it’s important to have an HVAC tune-up performed regularly – it can help ensure that your system is running smoothly and keeps you comfortable all season long.
Without maintenance, the system’s performance will deteriorate over time, like any other system. When the deterioration reaches critical levels, the entire system is likely to break. That’s when you’ll need the repairs which are more costly and time-consuming than regular maintenance. Routine maintenance will keep the system running longer and more efficiently.
Additionally, tune-ups reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning as extremely faulty HVAC systems can release more of this gas which you should not breathe.
Everything Included in an HVAC System Tune-Up
First, book your maintenance appointment online here. You can also give us a call at 301-663-0300 if you prefer to speak to someone. It’s recommended that you book a maintenance visit 1-2 times per year; one summer tune-up and one winter tune-up.
The typical maintenance appointment lasts 1-2 hours. During that time, your HVAC technician will be checking about thirty items on their list to make sure it’s all running smoothly.
The tune-up usually includes the inspection of:
- Heat exchangers
- Condenser motors
- Safety devices
It also checks carbon monoxide levels, temperatures, pressures, connections, and relays.
Tune-ups don’t only consist of inspections though; they also involve cleaning of both the air conditioning system and furnace. Naturally, you can perform the cleaning yourself, but you can never do it as thoroughly or carefully as certified professionals who know precisely what they need to do.
