As we approach the end of summer, milder temperatures in Woodbridge, VA, might mean your HVAC system is the furthest thing from your mind. Since winters in our area generally bring lots of cold and snow, you want to be confident that your system is in great shape. Remembering HVAC maintenance will ensure your HVAC system serves you well through the rest of summer, and withstands the rigors of winter.
Routine maintenance will incorporate activities you can handle, and those for which you need professional assistance. Cleaning or replacing your air filter is one of the most important tasks you can undertake to help your system to perform efficiently. A clean filter helps air to flow easily through the system, and also helps to keep your indoor air clean.
If you don’t already have a maintenance plan in place for your HVAC system, it is worth considering. Having a professional technician examine and service your air conditioner will enhance its performance and extend its life. Regular maintenance also prevents breakdowns and costly repairs as your technician will be able to identify developing problems and take corrective action.
Overall System Inspection
Your HVAC technician will examine all parts of the system, and conduct a thorough check of the internal and external components. If necessary, parts will be lubricated, and any loose or damaged components will be tightened or replaced. Even if the units are in perfect condition, system efficiency will be impacted if other parts of the system are in disrepair. Your technician will therefore check to ensure supporting components such as the thermostat, are in good condition. A malfunctioning thermostat will not send the right signals to the system, resulting in problems such as frequent on and off cycling, and difficulty achieving ideal room temperatures. This inefficient operation will also increase energy consumption.
