Heating and Cooling Repair Services Include a Pre-Season Check-up

When you need your heat the most, you can be sure that is the time it will break down. It is not because Mother Nature is angry with you, but rather because you did not have your heating system checked before the season began. If your air conditioning stops working on the hottest day of the summer, you probably didn’t have an A/C check-up. These check-ups by Heating and Cooling Repair Services will spot potential problems that can be fixed before they cause a real problem.

The heating system needs to be checked to be sure all connections are secure and the gas pressure is where it should be for your furnace. The burners should be cleaned, and the heat exchanger should be examined for cracks. The burners should be adjusted to achieve a fuel savings. The blower fan should be cleaned and the motor oiled. A clean blower enables the motor to operate efficiently, and it lengthens the motor life. Clean and adjust the pilot light as well as the thermocouple, which is a safety item. The high limit control should be checked also. The flue pipe should be checked for dangerous leaks of carbon monoxide. The belts should be checked for tension and alignment. All wiring connections should be checked and tightened. Test for gas leaks.

The air conditioning system needs to be checked before the season begins. A maintenance check-up should include cleaning evaporator and condenser coils. Dirty coils cause all kinds of problems. They will reduce the system’s ability to cool your home and cause higher energy costs while reducing the life of the equipment. The refrigerant level should be checked, and if it is too low, there might be a leak that needs repairing. Adjusting and cleaning dirty blower components can increase the efficiency by up to 10 percent. Lubricate all moving parts. Check the condensate drain since it can cause water back up in the house if it is dirty and plugged. Check all of the electrical connections and measure the voltage and the current. Tighten all connections.

The above is a partial list, and specialists in Heating and Cooling Repair Services can provide more information on their cleaning processes.
