Why do you need an HVAC maintenance plan?

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, also known as HVAC units, need to be checked regularly, just like any other electronic equipment. The reason for doing so is similar to a car: preventing the unit from breaking down during the time you would need it most. In this article, you will find a short guide to HVAC preventive maintenance plans, and why you need them.

 

Why do HVAC units need maintenance at all?

 

Extreme temperature swings can put a strain on HVAC systems, one of the largest expenses of homeowners. The best way to protect your HVAC equipment is to do preventative maintenance, and it’s also mandatory if you want to keep the warranty that came with the machines. By requesting regular preventive maintenance on your HVAC system, you will not only ensure its maximum efficiency but also extend its lifespan. 

 

What can you expect from an HVAC maintenance plan?

 

  • Lower energy bills: A malfunctioning machine can lose its high efficiency, resulting in higher energy consumption.
  • Fewer repairs: High-quality equipment requires no more than an annual checkup. 
  • Avoid disasters: If you want to avoid a broken boiler in the winter, a boiler maintenance plan is a must. 
  • Equipment lasts longer: with HVAC preventive maintenance plans, experts will easily identify all potential risk factors in your equipment.

In the case of the recent occurrence, the heating and cooling units are subjected to much more stress, which is why frequent checkups are especially important. Your HVAC preventative maintenance checklist should include the following activities:

 

  • All filters should be replaced.
  • Cleaning the evaporator coils and condensers.
  • Ensure all drain lines are clear to avoid standing water and overflow of drain pans.
  • Check pulleys and belts for wear and replace as needed.
  • Check refrigerant charge and for possible leaks.
  • Check programming of thermostat, battery and ensure controls are functioning properly.
  • Check the electrical system, battery and all electrical connections.
  • The fan motor must be functioning properly.
  • Ensuring proper airflow by checking the fans and blades.
  • All moving parts should be lubricated.

 

Why are industrial HVAC maintenance plans key to your business?

While residential HVAC checkups are important to avoid heating or cooling issues that might cause a few unpleasant days for you and your family, industrial HVAC units are often vital for businesses. Especially if you work with people or use materials that require a controlled environment and room temperature, an industrial HVAC maintenance plan (with frequent checkups) is an important part of operations.
