Seasonal HVAC Checklist: What to Expect During Your Spring Service Appointment

POST / Seasonal HVAC Checklist: What to Expect During Your Spring Service Appointment

As the seasons change, so do the demands on your HVAC system. To ensure your home stays comfortable year-round and your HVAC system runs efficiently, it’s important to schedule regular biannual maintenance checkups. It just so happens that Spring is a great time to start.

Here’s what you can expect from your next visit from the team at Scotty’s Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., conveniently located in Coweta County.

Inspection of Cooling Components

One of the primary tasks during a spring seasonal HVAC service appointment is inspecting the cooling components of your system. This includes checking the blower, evaporator coil, heat pump condensing unit, and or air conditioner, as well as your thermostat. One of our trained technicians will examine each component for signs of wear and tear, build-up, cleanliness, and proper operation. They’ll also lubricate
moving parts, tighten, or clean electrical connections, and calibrate the thermostat if necessary.

Cleaning and Replacing Filters

Clean air filters are essential for maintaining good indoor air quality and ensuring optimal airflow throughout your home. During your service appointment, the technician will inspect the air filters and clean or replace them as needed. Why is this important?

Clogged filters can lead to reduced efficiency and air quality. They can also lead to system breakdowns.

Our techs keep a supply of standard-size filters on their trucks to make available to you if you haven’t pre-purchased your own.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

For air conditioning or heat pump systems, checking refrigerant levels is a crucial part of the maintenance process. With the upcoming Georgia Summer, this is even more important!

Low refrigerant levels can indicate a leak in the system, which can lead to decreased cooling performance, and increased energy consumption.

To ensure your unit is running at peak performance our HVAC technicians will check and recharge the system if necessary. Depending on the history of the system as well as age and condition other recommendations may be offered to you.

Testing Safety Controls

Safety is not something we take lightly, so during your service appointment our service techs will test the safety devices for their proper operation ensuring their functionality helps prevent potential hazards.

Providing Recommendations for Improvements

At the end of your service appointment, the technician will provide recommendations for any necessary repairs or improvements to your HVAC system. This might include replacing worn-out components, installing Safety devices, adding indoor air quality products, or upgrading to a more modern energy-efficient thermostat. If you are part of our service agreement program, you will receive a discount on the parts needing replacement. Just another reason to ask our technicians about our service agreement!
