What is Preventative Maintenance?
Preventative maintenance is any service that is rendered when your system is healthy and not in need of repair. This can be anything from filter changes that you do by yourself, to full system inspections. The goal of preventative maintenance is in its name: to prevent breakdowns from occuring and to keep the system working until it is time for a replacement. Most preventative maintenance, such as cleaning, lubrication, modifications, and inspections, need to be done by a licensed HVAC professional to avoid system damage or injury.
One of the positive results of regular maintenance is that you will notice a decrease in the amount of repairs your system will need. If you are calling for HVAC repair more often than you would like, you can try investing in more regular maintenance to keep components from breaking down. Maintenance will also lead to more efficient operation for longer, extending the lifespan of the system beyond the 10-15 years that is generally expected.
If this isn’t enough to convince you of the benefits of regular maintenance, listen to your warranty. Coverage for repairs is usually only assured if the homeowner has been careful to keep all required maintenance appointments. Check your warranty to see when tune-ups or inspections are recommended, and plan on calling us when maintenance is due.
It is amazing how much one simple yearly maintenance appointment can change the way your air conditioning system runs. Throughout the year your system has times of being used, and other times when it sits idle for months. Both of these situations can cause your unit to degrade, leading to problems the next time you turn it on. Tune-ups are important for removing dust and build-up and checking that all of the components are still in good condition.
The main purpose of a tune-up is to get your system running as cold and efficient as it was the day your purchased it. An AC’s efficiency can be inhibited by dirty or obstructed vents, a buildup of dirt on the condenser coils, obstructions on the outdoor unit, a clogged drain line, a malfunctioning thermostat, and more. During an appointment, we check all of these things and make any adjustments that are needed. We love to make sure your system, including the indoor and outdoor units, is sparkling clean.
