What Is HVAC Service and Why Exactly Would You Need One?

You would never drive your car for thousands upon thousands of miles before changing the oil, would you? Well, the same goes for your HVAC system. Regular maintenance by a professional technician or contractor can help save on the cost of repairs in the long run. It’s the best way to ensure peak performance and trouble-free operation of your system, too. So, what is HVAC service and what does it entail? For starters, pre-season maintenance is a must, as it can help prevent system failures in severe cold or hot weather conditions. Maintenance also helps keep your energy bills from rising. The best time to do a service is before severe weather seasons set in. If your system heats and cools, book a service during the fall and spring. If you only want cooling system maintenance, be sure to book it in the spring. You can book your heating maintenance in the fall.

Do You Require HVAC Maintenance? What Does HVAC Service Include?

If you’re wondering what does HVAC service include, we have the answer. It’s about bringing your unit back to factory fresh condition. For outdoor units, a professional will inspect the unit for the right refrigerant level and adjust accordingly, as well as cleaning out dirt, debris and leaves, and inspecting the base pan for any restricted drain opening. The cabinet and coil will also be inspected for wear and tear, and lubricated as necessary. If you have an outdoor system that is due to be serviced, you can call a local technician to perform the service. Indoor units require even greater maintenance, so it is best to use the professionals.

Wondering How Often to Service HVAC System? Here’s a Checklist

If you’re wondering how often to service HVAC or book professional maintenance, we can help. An annual inspection, cleaning, and servicing of your system is recommended so as to find any problems early and prevent an emergency from occurring. Most homeowners prefer to have a service done before the summer air conditioning season arrives. Professional technicians often offer a preventative maintenance plan which will guarantee a complete servicing, cleaning, and checkup of any parts that may require repair or replacement. This means that homeowners can ensure that their unit continues to operate optimally and not worry about encountering any problems when it is too hot or too cold.

Do You Need to Know How to Service HVAC System?

When it comes to how to service HVAC system, you need to remember that all portions of the air conditioning unit must be inspected. The plan is to check the condensate pan, heat exchanger, coils, and blower motor, but these are just some of the parts of the overall system. For instance, newer blower motors are sealed and don’t need oil adding, but the older motors do require thorough inspection. Gas heaters must be checked for carbon monoxide and efficiency every two years or sooner. Here are the benefits to regular services:

  • Increase in dependability
  • Find potential problems early
  • Prolong the lifespan with how to service HVAC system
  • Provide optimal efficiency
  • Lower utility bills
  • Maintain safe operation
  • Protect the environment

When he finally got the parts necessary from the manufacturer, he had my heat pump, repaired and ready to go. I am completely satisfied with his work and his prices.

Steve and his employees were friendly, on time, and worked their butts off to install my new heater and A/C unit in 1 day.
Client
Great attention to detail and pride in work performed. They provided two upgrades (one to the heater and one to the humidifier) free of charge because of non-availability of what was ordered.

A few days ago I had water in my basement and it was near the heater. It was warm and the air conditioning unit was running. I called Stauffer's One Hour and someone was able to come out that same afternoon.
Pat M.
Steve was great. It was an extremely hot day, we couldn't get anyone else out for days. You came the same evening we called. Steve stayed as long as it took to defrost the lines, do the analysis and come up with some options.
Kelly F.
Steve personally oversaw the replacement of our ductwork, and has been back recently even to install a new register that he special ordered for the job. You can tell he takes pride in making sure every customer is satisfied. So far I am!
William C.
Steve's supremely service-oriented and genial. It was a pleasure at each encounter. He was very responsive and attentive to every issue, patiently explaining options and approaches to my furnace replacement.
Sam G.
Steve Stauffer has a good understanding of heating and a/c systems. He was able to answer all my questions, and there were many. He ordered and installed my system in 3 days. He and his helper were clean and even wore "booties" when entering my house.
Michael C.
Gas forced air furnace not working. Called a few hvac contractors and Steve was able to come out quickly. He was able to diagnose the problem and make the repair. Actually, not a furnace issue, but an electrical issue. Very fair price to boot.
Jim W.
Great job! Was running a little behind schedule but communication was great to let me know and still get there to tune up my A/C. Found it was not really worth tuning up because there were much bigger issues.

Steve Stauffer was very professional in all aspects during the replacement of my heating/cooling system. I recommend him highly. Various options were clearly defined to assist me in the system selection process.

Steve Called us and solved a very simple problem with our central air conditioner right over the phone. It"s great to know that there are still honest businessmen like Steve out there.
