What is a Mainenance Check-Up?
General maintenance operations
Check thermostat settings to ensure the cooling and heating system keeps you comfortable when you are home and saves energy while you are away.
Check all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.
Where necessary lubricate all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause friction in motors and increases the amount of electricity you use.
Check and inspect the condensate drain in your central air conditioner, furnace and/or heat pump (when in cooling mode). A plugged drain can cause water damage in the house and affect indoor humidity levels.
Check controls of the system to ensure proper and safe operation. Check the starting cycle of the equipment to assure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.
Cooling specific operations
Check evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils. A dirty condenser coil reduces the system's ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
Check your central air conditioner's refrigerant level and adjust if necessary (additional costs for refrigerent). Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
Check and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels. Airflow problems can reduce your system's efficiency by up to 15 percent.
Heating specific operations
Check all gas connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger. Improperly operating gas (or oil) connections are a fire hazard and can contribute to health problems. A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation. Either can cause the equipment to operate less safely and efficiently.
Filters need attention, too!
Inspect, clean, or change air filters once a month in your central air conditioner, furnace, and/or heat pump. We’ll be happy to show you how to do this. A dirty filter can increase energy costs and damage your equipment, leading to early failure.
