Springtime HVAC Maintenance 7 Step Checklist


7 Step Springtime HVAC Maintenance Checklist for Homeowners

As spring approaches, you need to begin to think about your HVAC maintenance tasks prior to the looming summertime heat. It is no secret that the summer temperatures in the Houston area will make your air conditioning work hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

As an industry-leading HVAC maintenance contractor, All Star A/C & Heating Services can keep your HVAC system performing its best with regularly scheduled maintenance. Our factory-trained technicians have designed a comprehensive HVAC maintenance checklist to keep your system running effectively and efficiently all summer long.

1 Clean and Inspect Indoor HVAC Components

Mechanical components that are idle for several months can become dirty and damaged. It is   imperative that you inspect and clean the indoor components of your HVAC system prior to summertime heat. Your indoor coils, air blowers, vents, and all HVAC ductwork need to be inspected and cleaned. This inspection will identify any components that need to be repaired or replaced.

2 Clean and Inspect Your Outdoor HVAC Components

Just like your indoor HVAC components, your outdoor equipment can gather dirt and debris. Inspecting outdoor components for accumulated leaves, limbs, grass clippings, acorns, and other debris will ensure that it is free of any potential problems. Inspection of these HVAC components will identify any repairs and replacements that may need to be done.

3 Check for Air Conditioning Refrigerant Leaks

Refrigerant leaks cause two main problems. First, it contaminates the air that you breathe. In addition to compromised indoor air quality, refrigerant leaks also diminish the efficiency of your HVAC system. Spring is a prime time to inspect your air conditioning system for any leaks or potential future leaks. During our spring HVAC maintenance, we will also replenish any refrigerant that has been lost.

4 Complete Electrical Connection and Electrical Components Inspection

Damaged electrical connections can be extremely dangerous. The slightest fray in your wiring or a loose connection can be a fire hazard. It is vitally important that your electrical connections and the electrical HVAC components are inspected, tightened, and cleaned to prevent potential damage to your air conditioning system.

5 Inspect and Clean the Condensate Drain Line

Your condensate drain line is a crucial step in HVAC maintenance. A clogged line can result in costly water damage. A crucial step in the springtime maintenance of your HVAC system is keeping all drain lines clear of debris and draining properly to avoid any overflow issues.

6 Inspect Airflow and Leaking Ductwork

Keeping blower components clean and properly adjusted will keep efficient HVAC system airflow and reduce energy consumption. Our certified HVAC maintenance technicians can provide airflow testing to diagnose issues and identify damaged equipment and ductwork leaks.

7 Inspect and Test Thermostat

Your thermostat controls the functionality of your HVAC system. Testing and checking your thermostat is a crucial step in springtime HVAC maintenance. Inspecting your thermostat prior to the summer heat, replacing batteries, or replacing it completely with a more energy-efficient Smart Thermostat is a great way to keep your system functioning at its best.
