How Often Should You Get HVAC Maintenance?

HVAC Maintenance

Mt. Airy, NC, has extreme weather. Summers are hot and humid, while winters are wet and cold. You’ll need a reliable heating and cooling system to maintain comfort in your home. In order for your heating and cooling system to work as intended, it needs regular maintenance. Follow these tips from our NATE-certified technicians at J's HVAC Unlimited to know when and how often to schedule tune-ups for your heating and cooling system.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Your house’s air conditioning system needs an annual maintenance visit every spring. During this visit, our technicians will check the refrigerant level, clean the condensate line, and test the system’s performance. We’ll also inspect the thermostat and make sure the fan blades are clean. We’ll clean the condenser and evaporator coils and lubricate all moving parts as well. Our technicians will also check and replace the air filter.

Furnace, Electric Heating, or Boiler Maintenance

Gas and electric furnaces, electric baseboard and resistance heating systems, and boilers need one annual maintenance visit. The best time of the year to schedule this is mid-autumn. Our skilled technicians will check the electrical and gas lines and connections, clean the blower motor, and check the flue. We’ll also inspect the heat exchanger, ignition, or pilot, burner, and combustion chamber seal.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Heat pumps transfer heat into your home in the wintertime and out of it during the summertime. If your house uses a heat pump for heating and cooling, it needs two maintenance visits each year. Schedule one of these tune-ups in the spring and the other during the autumn season. Our heat pump maintenance services include verifying the refrigerant level, cleaning the condensate line, and cleaning all moving parts.
