Heating and Cooling System -Preventive check-ups and Maintenance

Updated: Jun 1

Air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps are also known as HVAC help regulate the temperature in your home and make it more comfortable.


To ensure that your heating and cooling systems remain effective and efficient, regular maintenance is needed, filters replaced, grills cleaned, etc...


Preventative checkups and maintenance prolong the life of your systems. That is why warranties are only valid if you performed the required maintenance!


Maintenance requirements vary depending on the type of system, so it is best to consult your owner's manual.


But if you are like most of the people we help, the manual is long gone, in this case just book an assessment, we handle those details for you. We put together all that you need to know about your HVAC system and prepare a job plan and a maintenance schedule for you to follow in the future!


For the price of a service call, we assess what is the maintenance needs, and do the basics along the way.


Don't wait for a problem to happen, be proactive and address the ONE thing that most causes system breakdowns - Deferred maintenance.


General Suggested Maintenance Includes:

  1. Inspecting air filtration systems every six months during seasons of peak use and replacing or cleaning dirty filters.

  2. Checking for disconnected or crushed ductwork. Disconnected ducts can result in heated/cooled air being distributed outside or in areas of the house where it is not needed. Crushed ducts restrict airflow and reduce system efficiency.

  3. Sealing duct leaks and insulating ducts to reduce energy loss, especially in the attics, crawl spaces, and unconditioned areas.

  4. Clearing away weeds and debris around outside air-conditioning or heat pump units. Air should circulate freely around the unit.

  5. Hiring us to inspect and assess the deferred maintenance for your home’s heating and cooling systems, and making an assessment of proper functions prior to the season of use (that is, air-conditioning should be inspected in the spring, and furnace should be checked in the fall).
