HVAC Spring Start-Up

As winter turns to spring, it’s crucial to hire a HVAC professional to service your system. An HVAC system is responsible for a significant proportion of the total energy use within a facility. When these systems don’t operate optimally, usually due to winter storm damage, dirty indoor ducts or plugged outdoor condensers, it’s a major contributor to energy waste.

Comprehensive preventive maintenance prolongs the life of the equipment and increases the efficiency of your HVAC system. With a preventive maintenance plan, HVAC professionals inspect and clean your units, as well as follow a manufacture’s checklist of your system.

Having a qualified technician inspect your equipment twice a year means you can identify issues while they are still small and easy to fix, rather than waiting until they damage your system or become expensive.

HVAC Spring Maintenance Checklist:

  • Replace the systems filter every 90 days. Some environments will require a filter change more frequently.
  • Visually inspect the refrigerant lines and check for costly leaks
  • Tighten all electrical connections
  • Blow out the condensate drain and clean pan
  • Wash the condenser coils
  • Inspect the blower belt and adjust for proper tension
  • Lubricate all bearings
  • Inspect all controls
  • Verify economizer operation
