Keep your HVAC unit running smoothly, use less energy and stay cool this summer with a routine maintenance check. Remember: A cool and comfortable family is a less cranky family! The current cost of an HVAC inspection is less than $200. If you skip your scheduled service and need to replace your HVAC unit, you're going to pay upwards of $5,000.
Contact an HVAC professional. We wouldn’t recommend trying this yourself! Give a local HVAC professional a call and schedule a "basic HVAC maintenance check-up." a professional to prevent damaging your air conditioner and to ensure that it’s properly maintained. Tip: Use Angie's List to find the best HVAC technician in your area.
Always schedule for spring. We highly recommend you schedule your HVAC tune-up in the spring. You’ll avoid the long waits and higher prices that come with summer, the peak season for HVAC repair visits.
Know your basics. Here’s a quick checklist to go over with your HVAC contractor when they arrive:
• Check for proper refrigerant levels
• Check all electrical components and controls
• Clean evaporator and condenser coils
• Check oil motors
• Calibrate thermostat
• Check the condenser
• Check, clean and/or replace furnace filters
