Do You Need An HVAC Seasonal Tune-Up or Preventative Maintenance?

Do You Need An HVAC Seasonal Tune-Up or Preventative Maintenance?

You need to know the difference between preventative maintenance and seasonal tune-ups. You can do preventative maintenance to protect your HVAC system. Only licensed HVAC professionals should do seasonal tune-ups.

Let’s Talk Preventative Maintenance

As a homeowner, there are many things that you can do to protect and extend the life of your HVAC system. All these tasks fall under preventative maintenance. For the most part, you should perform most of these tasks every few months. A few examples of preventative maintenance tasks include:

  • Checking For Leaks And Noises
  • Inspecting the Compressor Unit, Thermostat, and Safety Controls
  • Cleaning The Exposed Parts Of Your HVAC System
  • Replacing Worn Out Air Filters

A Closer Look At Seasonal Tune-Ups

You should call in your HVAC professional twice a year. You should call in the early spring to check over your air conditioning parts. You should also call in the early fall to check over your heating parts. When your HVAC professional does a tune-up, they will do the following things:

  • Inspect Contacts, Wiring, Relays, Capacitors
  • Check Over Outdoor Compressor
  • Clean Out Condensate Drain
  • Clean Off Evaporator Coil
  • Lubricate Fan Motors and Blades
  • Test Compressor Amps During Startup

The Benefits Of Performing Preventative Maintenance And Seasonal Tune-Ups

You should know the differences between preventative maintenance and a seasonal tune-up. Understanding these is only half the battle. You need to know why they’re so important. This helps you make them part of your regular home care routine. With preventative maintenance, you keep your system efficient. This helps to remove dirt and debris. Changing out air filters allows for more airflow in the ventilation system. This means you get warm or cool air quicker than before. With a seasonal tune-up, an expert checks your entire system. They will fix any issues they find. They’ll also clean out areas that you can’t get to or don’t know how to clean.
