Spring is around the corner, and it is time to think about preparing your HVAC system for the hot days. You want your home to be cool and comfortable when the heatwaves are rolling in. Seasonal tune-ups and preventative maintenance ensure that you are ready for the upcoming weather. At Cascade Energy Services, we provide professional spring HVAC tune-up and preventative maintenance in Edmonds.
There is a difference in preventative maintenance and seasonal tune-ups. Seasonal work is often done in the spring and fall and prepares your HVAC system for the weather shift. Preventative maintenance gets done regularly throughout the year. Your spring tune-up can include the following:
- Checking the condensate drain – it should be free-flowing.
- Inspecting capacitors, relays, contacts, and wiring
- Checking the evaporator coil to make sure it is clean
- Lubricating parts such as the condenser fan motor
- Cleaning the condenser if needed
- Starting up the unit and examining the compressor amp
- Changing filters if needed
To keep your energy bills low and your heating and cooling system efficient regular maintenance is a must. Nothing lasts forever, but seasonal tune-ups keep your system in top condition. Our technicians look for parts that are wearing with age and replace them as needed. This helps prevent breakdowns and costly repairs down the road. Another benefit of a well-functioning HVAC system is better air quality. This is a definite plus for anyone but especially helpful if you have anyone in your home with asthma or allergies.
