Are preventative maintenance plans for your HVAC system worth the money? Just ask anyone in your neighborhood whose air conditioner failed in the past month or two. Georgia in the summer is not the sort of place where you can just open a couple of windows to keep cool. Regular maintenance by trained technicians can detect weak areas in your system, or fix minor problems before those problems become major.
Beyond changing the filters – an important task that most folks do themselves – a professional maintenance service plan provides these money-saving steps:
- Check refrigerant level, test for leaks, and refill
- Check for duct leakages and seal
- Measure air flow through the evaporator coil
- Check the thermostat’s accuracy
- Oil motor and check belts
- Check electric terminals, clean connections and tighten them
You may already know that if any of these items, the refrigerant level, duct seals, air flow, motor or electric connections, are not well maintained, your air conditioning system will not run efficiently. Your energy costs will soar, and you also will face increased risk of equipment breakdowns and expensive repairs.
