You may have heard the terms “preventive maintenance,” “seasonal tune-up” or “scheduled maintenance.” All these terms mean the same thing: having a licensed heating, ventilation and air conditioning contractor carefully inspect and calibrate each element of your HVAC system.
Preventive maintenance is important for several reasons. It catches small problems before they become big. It reduces the occurrence of breakdowns. It improves energy efficiency, and it prolongs the life of the system. All these reasons lower operating costs and make your heating and cooling system more reliable.
Importance of Tune-Ups
Summers in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, are hard on AC systems. High temperatures, high humidity and continuous use can strain equipment. During a tune-up, service technicians from Mechanical Air Conditioning examine all elements of your system, including:
- Calibrate thermostat
- Check refrigerant levels
- Check electrical connections and wiring
- Clean or change filter, as needed
- Lubricate motors, fans and other moving parts
- Clean evaporator and condenser coils
- Clean condensate pan and tubing
Our service team will report any problems identified so that you can decide how and when you would like to make repairs.
How Preventive Maintenance Works
The simplest way to ensure that your unit works at peak efficiency is to have a tune-up for the AC in the spring and one for the furnace in the fall. We offer annual maintenance agreements that include two tune-ups a year and a 15 percent discount on repairs. We schedule each tune-up to ensure that your equipment is ready for summer or winter weather.
