HVAC Maintenance

Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance Programs

Maintaining your Heating and Cooling system will add years to the overall life span to the system.  When Heat NW installs your HVAC System we will advise you on what basic maintenance needs to be done. Performing scheduled maintenance will have a huge impact on the long term health of your heating and cooling system.

HVAC MaintenanceStarting in year 3 the annual maintenance includes:

  • Cleaning of the whole HVAC System
  • Verifying proper airflow, cleaning and adjusting the blower as necessary.
  • Check thermostat settings to ensure the cooling and heating system keeps you comfortable when you are home and saves energy while you are away.
  • Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and amperage on motors.
  • Lubricate all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause friction in motors and increases the amount of electricity used.
  • Inspect the condensate drain pan and drain lines in your central air conditioner, furnace and/or heat pump. A plugged drain can cause water damage in the house, and can cause mold problems in the ductwork.
  • Sequence test system controls to ensure proper and safe operation. Verify that the equipment starts, operates, and shuts off properly.

A/C Specific

  • Clean evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils. Dirty coils reduce the system’s ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Check your central air conditioner’s refrigerant level and adjust if necessary. Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels. Airflow problems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 15 percent.

Heating Specific

  • Check all gas (or oil) connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger. Improperly operating gas (or oil) connections are a fire hazard and can contribute to health problems. A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation. Either can cause the equipment to operate less safely and efficiently.

Heat NW offers annual maintenance programs as well as repair work.

  • Residential HVAC maintenance programs
  • Repair of any current HVAC equipment.
  • System Diagnostic Evaluation (Includes a Thermostat, Indoor unit, Outdoor unit, and basic Ductwork and Performance Evaluation).
