What to expect during a tune-up
Regular maintenance and tune-ups hold many benefits, including better performance, greater longevity, and a reduced risk of
problems or breakdowns when you need your HVAC system the most. Your HVAC service can help you enjoy the improved home
comfort that comes with a well-tuned system by offering regular tune-up services for both your home heating and cooling systems.
Keep reading to discover what to expect from a professional HVAC tune-up and why your home can benefit so much from this simple service.
HVAC tune-up services begin with a thorough inspection of your entire heating and cooling system,
including your appliances and your thermostat. This inspection checks the condition of the electrical and mechanical
components inside each appliance to look for dirt, wear, or damage that may affect heating and cooling performance.
Your flue and ductwork will also be inspected for damage, corrosion, or buildup.
During the inspection, your HVAC service technician will closely examine any and all safety measures to ensure your
system is operating within safe and optimal parameters. The batteries in your thermostat will also be checked and replaced
if necessary, and any minor adjustments your system may require will be made as part of your tune-up service,
such as straightening your air conditioner coil fins and checking the schedule set in your thermostat.
HVAC tune-up services also include a full system cleaning. Dirt and dust buildup are a common cause of increased energy
bills and poor HVAC performance, as airflow and efficiency are both hindered by these conditions.
Your HVAC technician will take care to clean away any buildup and corrosion inside your heating and cooling appliances,
paying attention to every area, including electrical components for safety.
During this portion of the HVAC tune-up service, your technician will also check and replace your air filter if
necessary for cleaner indoor air and improved airflow through your heating and cooling system.
If your system includes a condensate tray or drip line, these components will also be emptied and cleaned to prevent
leaks and backups.
Once the system check and any cleaning services have been completed, your HVAC technician will brief you on the status of
your heating and cooling system. He will also make recommendations based on his overall findings,
such as whether components of your heating and cooling system require repair or replacement,
and whether you may want to consider an additional service such as duct cleaning for a healthier home and better HVAC
performance. You will also be able to ask your HVAC technician any questions you may have about your system, such as its age,
general condition, and whether he might recommend upgrading or replacing the system in the future for better performance and
monthly savings. If you opt to make any necessary repairs immediately, your technician will complete this service before
your tune-up is considered complete. Is your HVAC system overdue for a tune-up to improve its performance?
