HVAC Inspection & Repair by the Season

19February 2022

It’s important to keep your HVAC system in good shape by remembering to do seasonal preventive maintenance.

If you have a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system that keeps your home at the right temperature all year, it’s important to think about the different seasons when you check it to make sure it will work for that season.

There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to your HVAC unit, including:

  • The age of the system,
  • whether it currently works to capacity,
  • the last time you changed your air filter
  • and much more.

If your system is not keeping your home at a comfortable temperature it’s time to call in a professional who will know what to look for.

Spring

When the first days of spring come, it’s time to make sure your air conditioner is ready for the warmer weather.

This needs a tune-up for the AC. McCune heating and cooling will make sure that the air conditioner works well before the hottest days of summer come.

Summer

It’s important to change the filter monthly, especially if someone in your home suffers from allergies, but even more important to change it after Spring, moving into summer.

Check that air flow is correct, tighten any electrical connections, and monitor refrigerant pressure.

Don’t forget to clean your condensate drain.

Fall

When fall comes, it’s time for another tune-up, but this time you should think about how to heat your home.

Check the calibration of the thermostat, clean the furnace burner assembly, check again to make sure air is flowing properly, and change the filter.

Spring and Fall are the worst times for allergies, so you want to get rid of anything that could make your family sick.

Also, make sure to measure the difference in temperature between the air coming in and the air coming out.

Winter

Now that winter is here, make sure you’ve changed all the filters, tightened all the electrical parts, and oiled all the parts that move.

Make sure the area around the equipment is in good shape and free of clutter to avoid furnace fires.

A lot of HVAC units are in closets that also end up as storage repositories, so ensure that there is plenty of clearance to avoid fire hazards.

 

Every season pay attention to whether or not your system is making noises that it shouldn’t, whether there are smells that you don’t want there and other issues that can affect performance.

Your HVAC professional offers packages for Winter and Summer tune-ups to help make the most out of your HVAC system, keeping you and your family cool or warm as the case may be. It’s important to have regular maintenance before problems begin and definitely alert your professional to any differences that you’ve noticed in your HVAC’s performance.
