What Is Included in an HVAC Tune-Up?
Written by Kendall Richards | January 19, 2021
Here at All Comfort Services, we believe that preventing problems is always better than reacting to them. One of the best ways to prevent problems with your HVAC system is with regular tune-up appointments. By having your system serviced at the start of the heating season and again at the start of the cooling season, you can enjoy year-round comfort efficiently and with less risk of a breakdown. But we also know our customers often wonder what happens at their tune-up appointment. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect when you call our team to optimize your system.
Services Included in an HVAC Tune-Up
There are three basic parts of an HVAC tune-up. This includes an inspection of your system, cleaning of your system, and overall service. Most of the time the tune-up does not include repairs, but some minor repairs may be done.
When the technician arrives at your home, they will start with a thorough inspection of your equipment, including both the indoor and outdoor components. This is a visual inspection, but it’s more detailed than a homeowner can perform due to the technician’s knowledge and training. Some of the things that the technician will check include:
- Signs of wear and tear on the system
- Drip pan
- Refrigerant levels
- Heat exchanger
Cleaning the System
After the visual inspection, the technician will get to work cleaning the system. This includes cleaning both the inside and the outside of the unit. It also includes changing the air filter. During the cleaning, the technician may find additional areas to inspect or sources of indoor air quality problems to address. Cleaning helps the system run efficiently and reduces the risk of damage to critical components.
Servicing the System
Finally, the technician will service the system. This means:
- Correcting any minor problems found in the inspection
- Replacing worn-out parts
- Topping off refrigerant levels
- Ensuring everything is running efficiently
By taking these steps, your technician can help protect your system from experiencing serious problems down the road.
