    What Should I Expect During an HVAC Maintenance Visit?

    Wednesday, February 15, 2017  |  Smoak's Comfort Control


    The heating and ventilation system is one of the most important parts of your home. When it's running optimally, you'll be more comfortable and your energy bill will be a lot lower than if the system is running inefficiently. The best way to keep these machines in good working order is by scheduling an HVAC technician to perform tests and maintenance.

    Typically, the technician will check for three things during his inspection:

    1. General Systems Inspection
    2. The technician will check that the system maintains the correct temperature throughout your home. He will also see if air is circulating correctly and if your house has safe levels of carbon monoxide. All external housing, parts and lines will be inspected for damage or rusting. The technician may also check for signs of water damage caused by excessive condensation.

    3. Cleaning
    4. The technician will remove dust, dirt, and other buildup. He may open up the equipment housing to clean on the inside. This is a good point in the inspection for you to ask about what sort of cleaning you can do yourself, and any possible problems to look out for.

    5. Repairs
    6. Like any appliance, the components of your home's HVAC system will need occasional repairs. Minor fixes will be done on the spot. Major repairs may take several days. You will be given a cost estimate before the necessary parts are ordered.
