Your home heating and cooling systems work very hard throughout the year, and like any other machine with moving parts, they’re somewhat vulnerable to wear and tear. Without proper maintenance, your air conditioner and heater will start to break down, lowering energy efficiency and increasing the risk of future issues. On the other hand, a well-maintained HVAC system is an efficient system, one that will last for many years. Investing in a preventive maintenance plan from BTAC will help you protect those essential systems.
Our HVAC Maintenance Services
Properly maintaining something as complex as an air conditioner, heat pump or furnace is always an intricate process. Here are just a few of the things we do during a typical maintenance visit:
- Check and calibrate the thermostat
- Inspect and tighten electrical connections
- Check system controls
- Lubricate any and all moving parts
- Clean evaporator and condenser coils
- Check and clean the ignition and burner assembly
- Clean and adjust blower components
- Check and clean or replace air filters
As a rule, we recommend having your HVAC systems maintained twice per year. We’ll check your cooling system once at the beginning of the summer, then return to check on your furnace at the start of the heating season.
Advantages of Preventive Maintenance
Of course, the biggest advantage of preventive maintenance is prevention. Air conditioners are generally designed to last up to 10 years, and furnaces can make it even longer, but in order to reach the upper end of their effective lifespans, they need to be maintained. By having our maintenance professionals check on your HVAC systems every year, you’ll reduce the risk of issues that could shorten those lifespans, preventing expensive repairs and early replacements down the road.
Maintenance isn’t just about long-term savings, though. During each visit, we’ll make the small calibration adjustments needed for your HVAC systems to run at peak efficiency, reducing energy and fuel usage. You’ll see the difference on your next utility bill. In other words, our heating and air conditioning maintenance plans save you money two ways by cutting your bills in the short term and preventing issues in the long term.
