If you’re like many homeowners, you likely don’t think about your heating and cooling system much. You know that it makes your home more comfortable. But when it breaks down, it can become a major disruption in your life. The good news is that preventative maintenance from Area Sheet can help keep your HVAC system in tip-top shape.
Preventive maintenance for HVAC systems is a proactive approach that involves regular inspection, cleaning, and servicing of your heating and cooling units. This routine care helps ensure optimal performance. It also prolongs the life of your system and prevents the occurrence of unexpected, costly breakdowns.
By staying ahead of potential issues, preventive maintenance transforms your HVAC system into a reliable, efficient, and long-lasting home comfort solution.
If you have yet to get on a preventive maintenance plan, there are several reasons why it’s a good idea. When customers sign up with our plan at Area Sheet Heating & Cooling, they can experience the following:
No homeowner wants to deal with heating and cooling problems. However, the truth is that many problems pop up if you don’t maintain your HVAC. Below are some examples
The silent, unseen menace of many HVAC systems, dirty air filters are an all-too-common issue that can cause havoc if left unchecked.
Over time, air filters accumulate a thick layer of dust, pollen, and other airborne particles, restricting airflow and forcing your system to work harder. Regular preventative maintenance includes the following:
A home with clean air filters promotes better airflow. Meanwhile, it also provides a healthier environment with cleanear air. If you have concerns about your home’s indoor air quality, ask us about our whole home humidifiers!
Clogged Condensate Drains
As your HVAC system cools your home, it also dehumidifies the air, producing condensate that drains away. However, these drains can become clogged with debris and algae, causing water to back up into your system or your home. Imagine a bustling city street suddenly blocked by a parade, causing traffic chaos. Preventative maintenance can prevent this issue.
We do this by ensuring the drains are regularly checked and cleared, keeping the condensate flowing freely, much like city maintenance crews keep our streets clear and safe.
Low Refrigerant Levels
Like the lifeblood of your cooling system, refrigerant is what allows your HVAC to produce that cool, refreshing air on hot summer days. But refrigerant levels can drop due to leaks or overuse, leaving your system straining to cool your home. It’s similar to a car running on fumes.
Regular preventative maintenance includes checking refrigerant levels and identifying any leaks. This ensures your HVAC system always has the right amount of refrigerant, ensuring smooth, efficient cooling and reducing the risk of costly breakdowns.
A thermostat controls the comfort of your home. But when the thermostat malfunctions, the entire concert falls apart. You may find your home too hot or too cold, or the HVAC may cycle on and off at inappropriate times.
Preventative maintenance includes checking the thermostat's calibration and ensuring it's functioning correctly, preserving the harmony of your home's climate control.
If you think your thermostat is malfunctioning, you may experience some of the following problems:
As time passes by, connections can loosen or corrode in your air conditioner or furnace. This causes the system to malfunction or fail altogether. It's akin to a well-oiled machine suddenly grinding to a halt because of a loose cog.
Regular preventative maintenance includes inspecting these connections, tightening, cleaning, or replacing them as necessary. This helps to ensure your HVAC system runs smoothly, delivering consistent, reliable performance while preventing potential safety hazards.
