Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are often easy to forget about when everything else in your home is running well.
However, once they fail to cool or heat your home,
the drastic difference is quite unbearable. It is important to have your HVAC system checked regularly to ensure they run efficiently and
won’t break in the near future.
How often should you have your system
inspected and what signs should you look for to see if you need additional services or maintenance?
Here are some answers that could help point you in the right direction.
HVAC systems should be serviced at least once a year. If your system is working overtime, you might want to consider having it serviced two or three times a year. HVAC systems work very hard to keep your house at a comfortable temperature, so it is essential to make sure they are in their best shape. It is a good idea to have your system checked right before summer so you can make sure your AC is ready for hot days ahead. The same goes for your heating system due to Utah’s chilly winter months. At your routine maintenance check, your technician will check that:
- Your filters are clean and efficient
- All electrical systems are operating within set parameters (over half of all breakdowns are electrical in nature)
- The indoor and outdoor coils are clean
- Your condensate pump, or condensate line is free of sludge
- An overall visual check is made to ensure that your system is running clean, safe & efficient
Signs that you need immediate service:
