What Maintenance Is Performed Each Spring as Part of My Maintenance Agreement?

Chris Helms - Thursday, April 02, 2015

Learn whether or not maintenance agreements include everything your HVAC needs for the spring and summer months.

Seasonal Maintenance

If you’re considering maintenance agreements for your HVAC system, you might be wondering what type of service is performed as part of the agreements. When you’re getting ready for the warmer months of spring and summer, it’s good to have a checklist so you know what’s what.

The Benefits

Regular maintenance of your heating and cooling system helps keep it running smoothly, but it also helps keep it running at its most efficient. Catching any small issues before they become big problems helps save you money on costly repairs in the future, but also gives you peace of mind knowing your AC unit will keep your house cool all summer long.

What Will Be Checked?

During spring maintenance, there is a general list of things that get checked, tested, and adjusted to make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer. This list includes:

  • Checking the thermostat and adjusting if necessary
  • Checking electrical connections to ensure safe operation
  • Lubricating moving parts in the motor
  • Inspecting the drain where condensation flows to make sure it isn’t blocked or clogged
  • Inspect and clean the condenser coil and inspect the evaporator coil
  • Checking the level of the refrigerant
  • Checking, adjusting, and cleaning the blower and blower components to ensure proper airflow

Why Have a Maintenance Plan?

General maintenance is important to ensure your air conditioner is running at peak performance, but regularly scheduled maintenance is a big piece of the puzzle. A maintenance agreement not only guarantees your HVAC will get regular TLC, most companies offer a discount on any necessary repairs when you have a maintenance plan in place.

The benefits of regular service for your heating and cooling system helps ensure your home stays comfortable year round and that your system is running at its most energy efficient.
