Groundhog Day can be more than a fun holiday predicting the rest of winter; have you ever considered that it’s also a good time of year to schedule routine maintenance for your HVAC system? At Mechanical Air Systems Co, our team of certified experts can keep your heating and cooling system in optimal condition. It just so happens that this time of year is a prime moment for an HVAC maintenance visit.

When You Should Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance

As Groundhog Day marks a potential shift in seasons, it's also an ideal time to take a look at your furnace. For example, single-digit temperatures can put a lot of strain on important parts of the system. Scheduling routine HVAC maintenance gives a professional HVAC technician a chance to help you decide if your furnace needs a tune-up.

A checkup at Groundhog Day also prepares your air conditioning or cooling system just in time for summer. In fact, scheduling two maintenance appointments annually will offer better results. One should be before spring with the other in fall.

Key Items to Include in Your HVAC Checkup

Routine maintenance visits are vital for ensuring your HVAC system operates efficiently for many years. A detailed inspection and cleaning process gives our technicians the time they need to ensure everything is in good condition. During a visit, some specific maintenance tasks your technician will perform can include:

  • Replacing the air filters or replacing any lost coolant: Keeping a healthy balance of airflow and filtration is key, which means regularly cleaning or switching out the air filters. If your system has lost any refrigerant, we'll refill the supply and locate the source of the leak.
  • Clearing the drain lines: Clearing the drainage system keeps things running smoothly and avoids water damage.
  • Checking electrical connections and safety features: Making sure that the wiring and software features are working correctly is crucial. This helps prevent fires and maintains your system's reliability.

The best kind of HVAC maintenance is proactive—preventing problems before they happen. This kind of proactive service from our professionals can offer your heating and cooling systems the optimal opportunity for peak performance.
