It doesn’t matter what type of heating and cooling system you have at home, HVAC maintenance is a critical component of its care. Every air conditioning, heat pump, and furnace unit requires proper maintenance to prevent expensive repairs and help the heating and air conditioning equipment run at its best throughout the year. In addition to DIY steps to maintain your HVAC, professional maintenance service should be performed by a licensed HVAC technician at certain points each year.

Regular Maintenance Benefits for Your Heating and Cooling System

Heating and cooling maintenance works to preserve the condition of air conditioner and heating equipment as well as the performance of the entire HVAC system. Whether you have a boiler, air conditioner, furnace, heat pump, or ductless HVAC system installed in your home, regular maintenance is a professional service you should never skip. You may think it only produces a minor boost to the system’s efficiency, but the advantages are actually far greater!

  • With regular maintenance, your HVAC equipment will operate with the highest energy efficiency levels possible. This will lower the cost of your energy bills so you don’t have to pay as much for heating and cooling.
  • HVAC maintenance preserves the condition of various components in the system. Without wear and tear causing irreversible damage, you won’t have to fret over the need to replace parts or cover the cost of an extensive repair service just so your system can function.
  • Preserving equipment condition through regular maintenance and cleaning means the overall system will be less prone to failures and breakdowns. This lowers your risk of losing heating and cooling altogether due to an HVAC failure, and your home can keep a comfortable temperature no matter the season.
  • A small investment in HVAC maintenance each year can actually add more years of life to your system. By maximizing the years of service you receive from your HVAC system, you’ll pay less to replace the system less often.
  • With a technician cleaning out the system and filters on a regular basis, air quality inside your home improves with fewer particle contaminants lingering in the air and on surfaces.
  • HVAC repair can be costly, but warranties provide some protection against the price to replace an expensive part. Most manufacturers require regular HVAC maintenance performed by a licensed technician in order to validate the terms of equipment warranties.

How Often Is HVAC Maintenance Needed & When Should It Be Scheduled?

Most manufacturers recommend HVAC maintenance for the indoor unit and outdoor unit during heating and cooling season. Heating system equipment like furnaces and boilers and cooling system equipment like an air conditioner should receive service one time each year; a heat pump that serves both purposes should be serviced twice each year.

Anytime maintenance on your system is completed by a professional, it’s beneficial. By strategically scheduling maintenance, you can gain some additional perks. To optimize maintenance value for your system, schedule an inspection and cleaning in the spring and in the fall, before winter starts.

Why schedule maintenance in the spring and fall, you ask? Because it pays to have a trained eye inspect the ins and outs of your HVAC system before it’s time to turn it on for peak usage season!

  • Spring and fall maintenance tune ups put eyes on all areas of your heating and cooling units before it’s time to put them to work. If there are faults present or issues that could develop into larger problems with use, they can be spotted and corrected early on so you don’t have to worry about a big repair down the road.
  • It’s extremely common for homeowners to find out about a system failure when they go to activate the heating and cooling units for the first hot or cold day each season. In such a situation, you’re left without the heat you need in the winter and the cooling necessary for hot days. With a tune up completed before this time arrives, you can feel confident that your system will run properly when it’s supposed to.

Another reason you want to take care of potential repairs before summer or winter is because these are the busiest times of the year for HVAC contractors. With so many homeowners experiencing the common scenario of no heat or no cooling on the first unseasonably hot or cold day, there’s a rush for professional repairs! If you’re in the mix, you could be forced to wait for days in order to get a professional out to your home to make the repairs your system needs.

Steps in HVAC Maintenance

When you have a technician inspect and service your HVAC system, this can include many different steps depending on which system is undergoing maintenance – heating or cooling? Parts in the indoor unit as well as the outdoor unit receive maintenance service to improve their condition and counteract wear.

At the time of your system tune up, heating and cooling performance metrics are also evaluated. Temperature drops between supply and return air are measured to diagnose issues such as leaks in ducts and refrigerant lines, poor air filter maintenance, and the need for fan speed adjustments. A pressure test can show our technician that there are leaks in ducts that could be sealed to improve the energy efficiency and air quality provided by your HVAC system.

While professional maintenance services shouldn’t be skipped, neither should DIY HVAC maintenance. Air filter changes are critical to ongoing performance and efficiency – running the system on dirty filters will reduce heating and cooling output and force the system to consume, and waste, excess energy. Make sure to check filters once every month and replace them with new air filters as necessary.
