HVAC Tune-Up Checklist
As the warmer weather begins to settle in, more people start using their HVAC systems more often. Therefore, scheduling a tune-up or maintenance check is essential to ensure you have a properly functioning HVAC unit when needed. With proper maintenance, you can extend the life of your unit and enhance the efficiency of your system. At your inspection, our service technicians will check for any wear and tear and make necessary repairs to prepare for peak cooling season. This will ensure comfortable, pollution-free air in your home and potentially save you from more significant repairs or system replacement.
It’s essential to have a thorough checkup of your system done to keep it running properly. At J. H. Roberts Inc. we offer a fine precision tune-up for your air conditioning system that includes the following:
- Change standard 1” filter(s)
- Chemically clean and wash condenser coil
- Lubricate motor and fan bearings
- Inspect, tighten, and test all electrical connections including disconnect switch
- Check thermostat
- Test system start and run capacitors
- Measure running and starting amperes, line voltage, and control voltage
- Monitor refrigerant, pressure, and temperatures
- Test and record super-heat/sub-cooling
Though this may seem like a lengthy list of items, a tune-up typically only lasts 45 minutes to an hour per system and will help prevent untimely breakdowns due to unobserved inadequacies in your system. As a reminder, air conditioning tune-ups should be performed between March and August. Heating tune-ups should be performed between September and February. Depending on the model or type of your HVAC system, you may need to have it serviced more frequently. The more you know about your HVAC unit, the more you’ll know when it needs service, and the less likely you’ll need repairs!
