Why You Need to Schedule a Tune-Up for Your HVAC System this Spring

Spring is an ideal time to arrange maintenance, inspection and repair work on your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. With a springtime visit from a professional technician for an HVAC tune up, your furnace can be checked after months of hard work; your central air conditioner can be prepared to provide energy-efficient cooling.

Safety

HVAC equipment is generally very reliable and safe. Your furnace does use a flammable fuel (natural gas, propane or oil) to provide heat. Carbon monoxide, a deadly gas, is a natural product of incomplete combustion. Frayed or damaged wiring can cause an unintended spark. Your central air conditioner uses refrigerant that is not meant to be inhaled.

Some parts to be checked:

  • gas lines and valves
  • chimney and flue
  • refrigerant lines
  • wiring and electrical connections

By having a technician inspect, clean and repair your equipment with an HVAC tune up, you are certain both the winter heating and summer cooling equipment are in safe working order.

Equipment Life

Properly maintained equipment lasts longer than neglected machinery. With an HVAC tune up, your technician can perform all these steps on your central air conditioner:

  • Measure and adjust your central air conditioner’s refrigerant levels
  • Inspect and clean the copper refrigerant lines
  • Clear the condensate drain
  • Clean evaporator and condenser coils
  • Inspect controls and wiring
  • Inspect and replace fan motor belts as needed

For your furnace on the same HVAC tune up, the technician can do all this:

  • Inspect and lubricate moving parts
  • Inspect, clean and adjust burners
  • Measure carbon monoxide and check ventilation
  • Test safety controls
  • Replace or clean filters

Environment

With your furnace producing minimal greenhouse gases and your central air conditioner tuned to perfection, you create a smaller carbon footprint, helping to maintain our country’s air and water resources.

Energy Efficiency

A properly maintained furnace and central air conditioner improve energy efficiency, cutting your home’s fuel and electrical bills while improving indoor air quality. According to the Institute for Building Efficiency, a spring tune up can improve your HVAC system’s energy efficiency by as much as 40 percent.

Peace of Mind

When you engage a professional HVAC contractor to send a trained technician to your home, you have peace of mind that your equipment and your family’s health are in good hands. While no one has a crystal ball, a good HVAC technician can diagnose small problems before they become large, expensive headaches.
