What Happens in the HVAC System Tune Up?
Wednesday, January 30, 2019

You may have heard that tune ups of HVAC system are essential, but do you know what it involves?

The majority of the home owners know that there comes a point when they’re supposed to tune up their HVAC system. However, many delay their HVAC system tune up because they don’t really understand what happens in it and why it is important. In this post, we’ll discuss what happens in the HVAC system tune up and why it’s essential.

Benefits of HVAC System Tune Up

A tune up of an HVAC system ensures that your HVAC system remains in optimal working condition. When you get your HVAC system tuned up in the hot summer months, you’ll be able to breathe easy in the cool air and your machine will be as energy efficient as possible. You won’t have to take additional steps to get your HVAC system in top condition and you won’t have to worry about costly repair during the summer days.

How Often Does a HVAC System Require Tune Up?

You may already know the importance of changing your HVAC air filters regularly to ensure good air quality throughout your home. But, for proper maintenance, it is essential to make your HVAC machine go through a thorough tune up at least twice a year. Just as our body needs a bi-annual health examination, the HVAC system needs a bi-annual tune up. In the HVAC system tune up, the technician will check to ensure that each and every thing is working fine and address any issues in the system that can result in expensive repairs if left unchecked.

What Happens in an HVAC System Tune Up?

Condenser Coils Are Cleaned

The condenser coils of your air conditioning unit moves warm air in the home outside. In most areas, condenser coils of the unit are located outside the home which makes them susceptible to dust, debris and dirt. Dirty coils make the unit inefficient, which means that your air conditioning unit must work much harder. As a result, your utility bills increase. In the HVAC system tune up, the technician will thoroughly clean your unit’s condenser coils to get your system back to optimal working condition.

Moving Parts Are Lubricated

Lubrication is an essential part of the tune up. It not only reduces heat build-up and friction to improve your HVAC system’s energy efficiency, but also, if done properly, helps avoid inconvenient and expensive breakdowns. In our years of working with HVAC systems, we have found that most people end up calling us for HVAC repairs when they face issues with their system’s motors.

Belt Is Checked

During the HVAC system tune up, technician will check the belt’s condition on the motors. If they notice wear and tear, they’ll replace the belt to ensure that your HVAC system is safe from potential problems in the future.

Coolant Levels Are Checked

During the tune up of your HVAC system, the technician will check the coolant levels. They’ll add more coolant if needed and check for any leaks in tubing, connection or pressure ports. If leak is identified, they’ll repair it to ensure proper functioning of the system.
