Regular maintenance is critical to the performance and durability of your heating and cooling system. By having your equipment serviced on a regular basis, you can avoid certain issues (such as rust, leaks and wear and tear) and ensure optimal efficiency all-year-round.
In this article, trusted heating and air conditioning service provider Modern Air Solutions shares a few reminders about HVAC service appointments.
When to Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Generally, heating and cooling systems require preventive maintenance twice a year. The ideal time to schedule a service appointment is in the spring and fall, as this enables you to prepare the system for the upcoming seasons.
Your air conditioner should be serviced once a year, either in late winter or early spring. Meanwhile, your furnace should also be checked at least once a year, ideally in late summer or early fall.
What to Expect During an HVAC Service Call
Your HVAC specialist’s maintenance checklist will vary depending on the specific equipment to be serviced and the season. For outdoor maintenance in the spring or fall, you can expect dirt, leaves and debris outside the main cabinet to be cleaned up. Critical components such as base pans, coils, cabinets and fan blades are also inspected for obstructions, holes, leaks and signs of wear and damage.
For indoor maintenance in the spring and fall, filters are typically replaced and the ductwork checked for leaks. Experts also check for unusual odors and abnormal noises when the system starts.
