HVAC maintenance is an important part of keeping your Wickenburg, Arizona, home’s climate control system working effectively and efficiently. If you’re looking forward to your first maintenance appointment but aren’t sure what to expect, here’s a quick rundown of what these visits usually involve.
The refrigerant in your system is a liquid contained inside the coils of the unit. It cools the air and removes moisture, improving your home’s humidity levels. If your refrigerant levels are low, your system won’t be able to cool your home as effectively, leading to higher utility bills and an uncomfortable home.
During system maintenance, the technician will check your refrigerant and top it off if necessary. Replacing the refrigerant in your HVAC system is not a simple job, so it’s important not to try it yourself. Always let the pros take care of that for you.
Adjust Mechanical Components
There are many mechanical components inside your HVAC system. If any of these components become worn down or move even slightly out of place, you may hear loud noises coming from the system and experience poor performance. Left alone for too long, these issues can lead to breakdowns and permanent damage. During maintenance visits, the technicians will inspect these components and make any adjustments needed, including replacing damaged ones and lubricating moving parts to ensure that friction is reduced and performance is improved.
Test Electrical System
Electrical problems can cause big issues with your home comfort. Electrical problems are also a job for professionals. A thorough check of your HVAC unit’s electrical system is part of every regular maintenance visit.
The electrical components of your HVAC system vary and include important parts like your thermostat and your cycling timer. Issues in the electrical system of your HVAC system can be discovered via testing and corrected relatively quickly, assuming the problem isn’t major.
