If you’ve had your HVAC system for a while, you might already know that regular maintenance is crucial for keeping it in good working order. Neglecting your annual system check and pre-maintenance appointment can lead to failure at the worst possible time; namely when it is very hot or very cold. Today, let’s have a look at what we do when we arrive at your home or place of business to do a “Clean and Tune”.
What Is a Clean and Tune?
In essence, a clean and tune is a type of service that involves ridding all the relevant components of dust and debris to keep them from malfunctioning and checking all the parts for defaults. Depending on the system you’re using, we will also lubricate certain parts.
As with most machinery, small issues are usually much easier to fix than large problems, so this type of maintenance can save you a lot of money. That way, you won’t have to arrange repair when your HVAC fails and you’re suffering from uncomfortable temperatures, but instead, we can anticipate and eliminate problems before they arise.
A Thorough System Check for Your HVAC
Depending on the exact system you have and how it works, we will do different types of checks and adjustments to ensure that everything is still in great working order. For example, we will recalibrate your thermostat, tighten all your electrical connections to ensure safety throughout the entire season, and check any fluid levels to find out whether a replacement or a top-up is necessary.
If we’re working on your air conditioning unit, we will also evaluate the efficiency of your blower motor and the current condition of the blower belt. In short, we will make sure that your system is as safe as possible and that there are no areas that could break in the next few months. This service will also improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC unit.
Cleaning of Your AC’s Condenser Coils
When we come to maintain your air conditioning system, we will thoroughly clean out your condenser coils. This will help your HVAC to be even more efficient, using up less power and therefore reducing your energy bills. What’s more, it also decreases wear and tear, so you’re less likely to have an expensive repair bill in the near future.
Why Is Pre Maintenance So Important?
As you can see, this kind of maintenance is crucial for a number of reasons. Both your heating and your air conditioning systems are used for only part of the year, so they can deteriorate during the “off” months.
Not only can a maintenance appointment save you money in the long run, but it can also prevent you from experiencing extreme temperatures and having to call us in the middle of a crisis. Our highly qualified technicians can identify and eliminate any problems with your system.
A Clean and Tune appointment at the beginning of the season can help to keep your HVAC system in great working order. Get in touch with us today at Owens Heating & Cooling in Jefferson, IA to find out more about our services and to book the first visit.
