The Preventative Maintenance Checklist

Published by Steven Weiland

Winter is right around the corner, so it’s important to make sure that your HVAC system is working as expected so you aren’t stuck with a faulty furnace in the dead of cold. If you need a furnace repair in Chicago, contact Heatmasters to get the job done. Here are some maintenance tips and tricks on how to prepare for winter.

Replace Filters On Heating Equipment

You should be changing out your HVAC filters every three months to make sure that your system is running at its absolute best. Make sure you follow your manufacturer’s specifications on filters if you choose to change them on your own. If you are unsure of how to do this, don’t hesitate to contact us today.

Check The Condition Of Belts And Pulleys

The belts and pulleys are what keep the HVAC unit working. If your belt is loose, it’ll ultimately add wear to the pulley and reduce the fan speed. Make sure everything is securely in place and nothing is defected or damaged.

Check Electrical Connections

If there are loose electrical connections or wires that are corroded or frayed, it will result in a faulty HVAC unit. It’s possible the connection can fail because of corrosion, vibration, or more, so contact one of our professional technicians to take a deeper look into your unit.

Check Operation Of Thermostats And Other Controls

Your thermostat should control both the heating and cooling systems of your home, so it’s important that the thermostat is working year-round. If the temperature in your home is suddenly freezing or burning hot, it may mean that your thermostat is not working properly. If you aren’t sure that the thermostat is the issue, call us today to find the source of your problem.
