The Critical Role of HVAC Maintenance in the Summer

Maintenance agreements provide an easy and carefree way to take the guesswork and stress out of knowing the condition and status of your HVAC system. HVAC systems have a lot of complex components, which means they are subject to wear and tear. Over time this can lead to unexpected failures. This is especially troublesome during the summer.

Why HVAC Maintenance Is Important

When the weather is very cold or very hot, it’s easy to understand the importance of making sure your heating or cooling system is working properly and doesn’t break down. The only thing worse than paying very high energy bills because of an inefficient air conditioner is not having a working air conditioner on the hottest day of the year.

HVAC maintenance is critical, especially during the summer, because it identifies small problems before they lead to big problems. Those big problems can decommission your HVAC unit until someone arrives to repair it. Small issues, such as a degraded electrical connection or low refrigerant levels may not keep your air conditioner from working, but it can lead to the air conditioner breaking down during high use in the summer.

Regular maintenance can also keep your air conditioner operating as efficiently as possible. Cleaning air filters and checking for leaks in ductwork can confirm your HVAC unit is cooling your indoor areas as effectively as possible.

What Does HVAC Maintenance Include?

Typical HVAC maintenance that occurs before the hot summer season includes:

  • Cleaning and replacing air filters.

  • Clearing any debris from condenser units.

  • Confirming the air conditioner has enough refrigerant.

  • Checking motors and fans for smooth operation and making sure there’s nothing out of balance.

Most HVAC maintenance visits will also include other tasks that will depend on your specific HVAC system.
