What exactly does an HVAC tech do when inspecting your heating and air conditioning system?
Regular maintenance on heating and air conditioning systems is vital to performance, lifespan, and to achieve money-saving efficiency. While most inspections are done in the spring, it isn’t too late to have your A/C inspected now. If you are considering a professional inspection, here are the top 10 things you can expect:
- 1. Your indoor and outdoor units will be checked out in a first-glance, basic wear and tear inspection before your tech gets down to the inside meat and potatoes of your unit.
- 2. The motors, fans, fan belts, blades, and other internal components will be checked and tested for condition.
- 3. The A/C’s coolant levels, the drain pan, and drain lines will all be evaluated and lost coolant will be replaced if needed.
- 4. The tech will also check circuits, wires, safety controls to ensure everything electrical is working well.
- 5. The thermostat controls will be checked and calibrated if necessary to make sure it is cooling efficiently as possible.
