You should get your AC serviced once a year. AC maintenance focuses on small improvements that can help your air conditioning run more efficiently. You will see improved airflow, which cuts down on how hard your system has to work just to cool your home.
Many people don’t realize what a difference regular maintenance can make in the efficiency of their system. Preventive services cut down on your long-term worries. Serious issues can develop when the proper maintenance doesn’t take place. When you nip problems in the bud, they won’t develop into something worse.
For instance, mechanical stress in your AC when a fan is not lubricated correctly can spark motors to burn out. Or, moisture from the evaporator coils may overflow when you fail to clear out the condensate pan. Technicians can recognize these signs of potential trouble and keep up with them each time they visit your home.
BENEFITS OF REGULAR HVAC MAINTENANCE
Scheduling annual maintenance can increase the longevity of your system. Your repair specialist will address any small problems that may be building before they become significant issues. Regular maintenance can also save you money because large problems can cost a lot to fix.
Other advantages of heater and AC maintenance include:
- Extending your system’s life.
- Reducing the cost of monthly bills with a more efficient system.
- Maintaining your warranty protection.
- You will also notice better comfort when you get regular maintenance and improve your system’s overall functionality. Maintenance from a professional can result in fewer loud noises and smells related to the HVAC system as well.

What’s Included in a Preventive HVAC Maintenance Tune Up?
You may have specific concerns that extend beyond this list, or you may realize not every item below applies to you. However, this checklist provides a terrific starting point for the tasks you should include in most regular HVAC checkups. The following items are the bare minimum our expert technicians will check when you schedule an HVAC tune up in York PA:
- Thermostat calibration: This task ensures your thermostat is working correctly and providing precise control over the temperature, as well as offering accurate temperature readings. Your professionals will fix any issues they find with this system, or else confirm the thermostat is working as it should be.
- Lubrication: HVAC systems consist of many moving parts, many of which frequently rub together as they cycle the air in and out of the system. This constant rubbing can lead the pieces to break down and wear out faster than they should. A little lubrication can go a long way toward helping these components achieve a longer lifespan.
- Controls check: This check ensures every control involved in the system works as it’s supposed to. Your tech will make sure the system stops, starts and performs every other function as directed with no issues.
- Blower maintenance: If your blower is dirty, blocked or misaligned, this will significantly reduce your unit’s efficiency. Any routine check should take the time to ensure this component is clean and free from any problems.
- Coil cleaning: The condenser and evaporator coils naturally grow dirty and clogged over time, causing the system to work harder than necessary. By cleaning these components once a year, you help lighten the load on your system, increasing its efficiency, effectiveness and overall lifespan.
- Proper fuel line connections check: If you have a system that runs on oil, gas or propane, this check makes sure every fuel line is connected properly, with no leaks anywhere. If the techs uncover any problems, they will promptly fix these to ensure a healthy system for another year.
- Cleaning and replacing filters: No filter lasts forever. These naturally fill up with dust, dirt and other contaminants, and you will, therefore, need to replace them regularly with new filters. Doing so should be part of any annual checkup.
- Cleaning intake and exhaust vents: Can the air get in and out of your HVAC system with no obstacles? If either the intake or exhaust vents are clogged or dirty, it will limit your system’s efficiency and effectiveness, as well as restricting its ability to keep your air clean. Always make sure to get these vents checked during your annual maintenance.
- Clean accumulated dust and mold: Anything you don’t often handle will naturally have a buildup of dust over time. Make sure to clean this coating off your system every year to ensure the highest level of functioning. Check for mold as well, as this may limit your machine’s functionality while also indicating excessive dampness, which may be a sign of an underlying problem.
You should call in the heating and cooling professionals at least once a year to perform an annual HVAC check that ticks the items off this list, but don’t be afraid to stop there. If you notice a strange sound, smell or peculiarity in your system’s functioning, don’t hesitate to call in a professional opinion, even if it hasn’t been a year yet. Who knows what issues you might catch before they have the chance to develop into a real problem by being proactive like this? Contact us today to talk to an expert!
