What's Included In An HVAC Tune-Up?

April 28, 2023 | Blog

Imagine your HVAC system is a pitcher of water. Throughout the year, it’s going to be constantly pouring out more and more water in order to keep you cool. If you don’t refill the pitcher, it will run out. The only way to refill the pitcher is to take care of your air conditioning and heating systems by scheduling regular maintenance, replacing air filters, and calling a technician when something is wrong.

At Island Airco, we understand that AC and heating are important, especially in the South! Luckily, there are a ton of different tune-ups and other maintenance services that you can schedule to make sure that your HVAC systems don’t let you down in the summer or winter. The most important parts of a tune-up are the maintenance and the cleaning, which will ensure that you get the heat and cooling you deserve.

What Should I Expect In A Seasonal HVAC Tune-Up?

You should expect your tune-up to include a lot of cleaning and maintenance, to make sure that everything is working properly. In between maintenance, if you’re starting to notice any odd behavior with your system, make sure to call a technician to address the problem right away, rather than waiting for your next tune-up. There are two essential parts to a tune-up:

Preventative Maintenance

There is a lot of maintenance involved with tune-ups and for a very good reason. This is to ensure that all of the parts of your AC and heating are working perfectly, as well as measuring pressure to make sure that you’re not in danger of leaks or fires.

The maintenance that your technician should include are:

  • Checking drain line and pan
  • Checking refrigerant level
  • Align and clean components
  • Checking burner combustion
  • Checking gas or oil pressure
  • Inspecting heat exchangers.

All of these play a very important role in your HVAC system’s functions, meaning that they should be checked twice a year. Allowing them to go unchecked can cause problems that range from minor power issues to electrical fires and gas leaks.

Cleaning Your HVAC System

There should also be a bit of cleaning during your HVAC tune-ups, as buildup and heat can lead to worse air quality over time. While your technician can clean the unit entirely, they can also

give you pointers on what to clean without them. Some of the things that they will clean include:

  • The condenser coils
  • The drain pan
  • The drain line
  • The evaporator coil

These will be cleaned to make sure your system runs efficiently all season long as well as preventing rust and other degenerative problems.
