HVAC Maintenance

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: keeping your HVAC system well-maintained will keep it in the best possible working order, saving you money on energy costs and repairs. Maintenance is relatively simple; however, if you need assistance, you can always contact Heatmasters. We can come out to your home or office and make sure everything is functioning properly.

Run through this checklist:

  1. Tighten electrical cords.
  2. Check thermostat settings. Keep it at a comfortable temperature while at home, but turn it down or up (depending on the season) when out of the house.
  3. Lubricate moving parts. Friction makes the system less energy-efficient.
  4. Check and change air filters. See these directions to learn how.
  5. Check controls, buttons and switches.
  6. Clear any drains. If drains under or around the system or clogged, it could cause water damage inside your home.

Before summer arrives, do the following:

  1. Clean coils for proper airflow.
  2. Clean the blower to increase A/C effectiveness.
  3. Check refrigerant.

Before winter arrives, do the following:

  1. Clean the burner assembly.
  2. Clean and test the pilot light.
  3. Check for gas leaks.
