Maintenance agreements are special arrangements for an HVAC professional to come out at a scheduled time and take a look at your HVAC unit. The technician makes sure the unit is working properly before the upcoming winter or summer seasons. With summer around the corner, maintenance agreement customers will soon have their pre-summer maintenance visits. But what exactly takes place during these visits? Keep reading to learn what you need to know.

What to Expect During a Maintenance Visit

Because the weather is getting warmer, it's the air conditioner that will get the most attention. It's probably been several months since the air conditioner has run for any extended period. Depending on your specific HVAC system, the following activities will take place during a maintenance visit:

  • Cleaning and replacement of the air filter.
  • Examining the condensate drain and piping to make sure water can freely flow.
  • Checking the thermostat to make sure it's working properly and accurately calibrated.
  • Checking the wiring for any loose or frayed wires or poor connections.
  • Lubricating of major moving parts to improve efficiency.
  • Checking refrigerant levels and topping it off, if necessary.
  • Confirming the ductwork provides for proper airflow.
  • Cleaning the condenser and evaporator coils of any debris.

If there's a problem, it's good to spot it during a maintenance visit rather than finding it when the air conditioner fails and breaks down. Not only does this mean less air conditioner downtime during the hot summer season, finding the problem early enough can mean lower repairs costs and averting major damage in the future.

There are significant benefits to checking over the air conditioner before months of heavy use. One way to make this maintenance easier and more effective is to enroll in one of the many maintenance agreements available.
