What Happens at an HVAC System Check?

A girl on the phone scheduling an appointmentWhen debating the perfect day to schedule your HVAC system check, to make sure your heating and cooling system is prepared to work at peak efficiency this summer, you may start to wonder what exactly happens during a “system check”.

We’d like to walk you through the average preventative maintenance visit we run here at Donnelly’s Plumbing Heating and Cooling.

First off, we’d be happy to shake your hand. Our technicians understand how important it is to experience great customer service right alongside quality workmanship. We’d be happy to speak with you about any concerns you’re currently having about your home heating and cooling system.

Are the vents blowing warm air on occasion? Has it been a few years since you’ve had maintenance done and you’re not sure if it’s worth the preventative maintenance visit? Is your system getting on in years and you’re in the market for a possible replacement?

Let us know! We’ll make sure your unique needs are taken into account and would be happy to walk you through your options and possible issues that may be at play.

Next, we’ll take our time checking to make sure everything is up to par. A maintenance visit for HVAC is going to involve a lot of little steps — we’ll take a look at the inner workings of your heating and cooling unit to check on your condensor and evaporator coils, thermostat, air filter, air ducts, and all the other functioning parts of your system.

This lets us catch the little problems before they become big issues. Some things may be as quick and easy as a simple cleaning (condensor coils, for instance, will usually just need an annual cleaning to stay operational for a long time).

We’ll speak with you about any problems we find that may need repair. We won’t perform scheduled maintenance and walk out without letting you know about our concerns. Whether it’s a small problem or has the makings of a big one, we’ll walk you through the problems, your choices when it comes to repair, and the results of the different choices you might make. We may even be able to give you an estimate of repair costs to let you better prepare for the investment.

Regular maintenance will ensure your system stays strong. Our system checks are aimed at ensuring you don’t have to pay for any serious, more expensive repairs or outright replacements for as long as possible. Little things like cleaning the condensor coil, checking on the status of you air ducts, and ensuring your air filters are routinely switched out can make the difference between a heating and cooling system that seems to always be working overtime to keep your home cool and one that hums along exactly as it’s designed to.

Don’t wait until summer’s heat to get your HVAC checked out.
