Why Summer Time Preventative Maintenance for Your HVAC is Important

When it comes to your plumbing, you will want to schedule preventive and routine maintenance for your HVAC unit. Since Arizona sees extreme temperatures during the summer months, it is important to schedule your preventative maintenance before summer hits to make sure everything is working efficiently and correctly before any issues start.

What is HVAC Preventative Maintenance?

In Arizona, you will want to get your HVAC checked twice a year, especially right before the triple digits come. Routine maintenance will ensure that your unit is running efficiently, saving you money on your electric bill. During your preventive maintenance check, your technician will check the filters and vents to make sure they are clear of debris, check coils and links for any clogs, check for leaks, and test thermostats.

You will also want to get your HVAC unit looked at when summer is over to make sure your unit is still running properly after the extreme heat and make sure your heater is ready for the cold temperatures that we sometimes see in Arizona in winter. Your technician will inspect for gas leaks, clean filters and vents, check the gas pressure and heat pumps, and examine all heat elements.

HVAC system issues to pay attention to

If you haven’t been able to schedule your preventative maintenance for the year, make sure you are paying attention to signs that could mean your system isn’t working correctly and may need a tune up.

Some of these signs might include:

–       Your HVAC system is making strange noises, especially when it is starting, running or stopping

–       Your unit shuts off before it properly cools your home down to the set temperature

–       You notice your electric bill is unusually high during the summer months, which could mean that your HVAC system is not running efficiently and there could be a deeper issue

–       You notice a puddle of water next to your HVAC system. This could be an early sign of a water leak and should be inspected sooner rather than later
