How often should I schedule HVAC maintenance?

So, you’ve got yourself a sweet HVAC system (hopefully a top-tier Carrier one), and now you’re wondering how often you should show it some love with maintenance. I get it. We all want our machines to last long and work perfectly, right? Let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of HVAC maintenance.

1. The Golden Rule: Twice a Year Yes, you read that right. Ideally, your HVAC system should be checked out twice a year. Think of it like taking your pet for a check-up – once before summer and once before winter. This ensures that both your air conditioning and heating systems are in tip-top shape right before their heaviest use.

2. What Happens During These Tune-ups?

  • For the Air Conditioner:
    • Cleaning or replacing filters (A must! Dirty filters make your system work harder.)
    • Checking for proper refrigerant levels and potential leaks.
    • Cleaning and inspecting coils for damage.
    • Checking the compressor and all moving parts.
    • Inspecting electrical connections.
  • For the Heater:
    • Cleaning or replacing filters.
    • Checking the heat exchanger for potential cracks.
    • Inspecting the burner assembly and ignition system.
    • Testing safety controls.
    • Making sure the flue system is up to snuff.

3. Best Time for Maintenance?

  • Air Conditioner: Ideally, spring! You know, just before those sunny beach days come around.
  • Heater: Fall’s the magic period. Right before you start dreaming of snowball fights and hot cocoa.
