If you’re like the hundreds of Texans preparing for some serious spring-cleaning, don’t forget to look beyond the closets and cupboards. An HVAC Spring tune-up is a critical part of helping your system last longer and perform well.
What Does a HVAC Tune-Up Include?
A tune-up is a planned preventive maintenance appointment to ensure your system is operating correctly and doesn’t require any critical repairs. To begin the tune-up, a professional will inspect your HVAC system and note signs of wear or concern such as:
- Abnormal sounds.
- Plugged condensate drains.
- Thermostat recalibration.
- Blocked airflow.
- Low refrigerant levels.
- Loose electrical connections.
Should the professional inspection indicate something is wrong, you can address the problem before it evolves into something more serious or expensive. This could mean a simple part replacement or a more complex repair.
If there are no issues during the inspection phase, they will replace all necessary air filters, lubricate moving parts, and clean dirty components before reassembling your system.
Benefits of Scheduling a Springtime HVAC Tune-Up
Seasonal and annual tune-ups are the best way to ensure your HVAC system has a long, happy life.
Additional benefits of an HVAC tune-up are:
- Prevent heating and cooling interruptions — With that famous Texas heat on the way, the last thing you want is to be left without an operational HVAC unit. Regular tune-ups give a professional HVAC service the chance to give your system an in-depth inspection and note concerns that could leave you without heating or cooling.
- Lower utility bills —Regular servicing keeps your system running efficiently, so it isn’t running constantly and consuming more energy than necessary.
- Better air quality — Because tune-ups include filter changes, it’s also a good way to manage your indoor air quality and keep your home or business free of dust, dander, and spores.
- Increased system longevity — Preventive inspection and servicing will prolong the life of your HVAC system and its components.
