    What Does an HVAC Tune-Up Involve?

We’ll start with our electrical component check. This includes a thorough assessment of your motor, capacitor, transformer, igniter, flame sensor, contactor, inducer, pressure switch, gas valve, and limit switches. We’ll check every one of these components individually. Just one bad component could bring your entire system down. We’ll then assess any parts that need cleaning, such as your blower wheel or evaporator coil. Just 1/16″ of dust on your blower wheel could reduce blower output by as much as 20%. This could cause your unit to overheat and cause damage to your heat exchanger and limit switches. We’ll clean away all dust and debris, leaving these parts able to operate safely and efficiently. And last but not least, we carry out a full safety check. One of the most important checks we carry out is on your heat exchanger. Cracks or holes in this component could lead to a carbon monoxide leak in your home. That’s something we’ll never leave unchecked. The safety and comfort of your family are our top priority.

    HVAC maintenance offers so many benefits, including:
    • Efficient and safe performance
    • Reduce energy costs
    • Reduce and avoid repair bills
    • Improve air quality

    Safety Risks of Not Servicing Your System

    There are many reasons to get your HVAC system serviced annually, such as reduced repairs, longer system life, clean air, and steady energy bills (to name a few). But there are actually some safety risks involved with NOT servicing your HVAC system with maintenance. Some symptoms of HVAC neglect can be small and silent, like an accumulation of dust or debris in the air. Over time, this can affect your respiratory health, especially if you or someone in the home suffers from allergies, asthma or severe lung disease. On a larger scale, avoiding HVAC tune-ups can result in sudden breakdowns. So if it’s the peak of summer, or in the middle of winter, you want to ensure your system will perform well when you need it most.

    In a worst case scenario, avoiding maintenance checks and not seeking repairs can result in more serious problems such as a carbon monoxide leak or damaging water leaks. A carbon monoxide leak is tasteless and odorless, so it can easily go unnoticed – not a great situation to be in. You can start to experience headaches, dizziness, overall weakness, an upset stomach, or even vomiting. Some people have experienced chest pain, and confusion when exposed to a carbon monoxide leak. This can result in fainting or worse. So it’s truly best to keep your HVAC system in check to prevent safety risks both big and small.
