Spring coming back means that warmer weather is on the way. Plus, it won’t be long until summer is here again. All of that means that getting preventative maintenance done is even more important than ever, especially with the transition from heating to cooling. There are still going to be some chilly days ahead even as April dawns. Let’s find out how you can save some money on necessary repairs!
Most HVAC systems need electricity to run. The electrical components of your HVAC system are incredibly fragile and can lead to massive downtime if they fail. Don’t let this happen to you. The technician who visits you for the preventative maintenance checkup will look at the wiring and connections to ensure that nothing is frayed or out of place. This alone can save you money on costly repairs later on by fixing a smaller problem before it has time to develop into a bigger headache.
Blower motors, fans, and motivators are three of the most important parts of your HVAC system. Subjecting them to inspections and maintenance is well worth it. Two fans that need to be monitored are the ones that send air to the condenser coil and the evaporator coil. If the motor ever breaks, it will lead to even more downtime and even more money lost. You should invest in a maintenance plan that represents the total package:
- Motor inspection
- Part lubrication
- Belt replacement
- New pulleys
We’ve mentioned before how R-22 refrigerants are on their way out. In the process of replacing them with something new, you might have accidentally opened up a leak. Leaks drastically reduce operating efficiency and cause your system to work harder to achieve the same results, which means they are much more prone to breaking down.
Just like refrigerants, water can leak out of your system. The evaporator coil pulls water out of the air and condensation should, normally, be vented out. On rare occasions, the condensation will stick and begin to leak instead of being released properly.
