Don’t Wait Till It’s Too Hot to Get Your Sarasota HVAC Checked

As cooler winter weather turns warm, it’s time to get your heating and air conditioning system ready for summer. One of the best ways to ensure indoor comfort during the humid, hot days of summer in Sarasota, Florida, is to have an HVAC checkup.

Seasonal Tune-Ups

Most manufacturers recommend checking HVAC equipment twice a year to ensure that components work properly. An AC maintenance company will check the heater in the fall and the air conditioner in the spring. A tune-up will:

  • Check and flush drip pans and tubing
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Check ductwork for leaks
  • Check refrigerant charge
  • Inspect blower and fans
  • Inspect and clean condenser
  • Inspect evaporator coil
  • Clean or replace filter, as needed
  • Inspect thermostat
  • Inspect electrical connections and contacts
  • Ensure unit cycles on and off appropriately

A fall tune-up will also:

  • Inspect furnace housing and plenum for cracks or rust
  • Inspect burners and starters
  • Check for leaks and proper combustion

Advantages of Preventive Maintenance

A well-maintained system performs more efficiently, saving up to 30 percent on utility bills. The major reason a heating and cooling units stops working is because of a dirty filter. When dust settles on coils, the compressor must work harder. Seasonal maintenance helps keep air flowing freely through the system, reducing the occurrence of breakdowns and the need for AC repairs.

Preventive maintenance increases the life of the unit. When a system functions more efficiently, there is less wear and tear on components. A well-functioning unit creates a more comfortable indoor environment.
