A typical maintenance check-up should include the following.
- 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 current on motors. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system.
- Lubricate all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause friction in motors and increase the amount of electricity you use.
- Check and inspect the condensate drain in your central air conditioner, furnace and/or heat pump (when in cooling mode). A plugged drain can cause water damage in the house and affect indoor humidity levels.
- Check controls of the system to ensure proper and safe operation.
- Clean evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils.
- Check your central air conditioner's refrigerant level and adjust if necessary.
- 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.
- 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.
Actions To-Do Yourself
- Inspect, clean, or change air filters once a month in your central air conditioner, furnace, and/or heat pump. Your Jacksonville contractor can show you how to do this.
Here are a few helpful tips on choosing a licensed and insured heating & air conditioning contractor.
Tips for Hiring a Heating and Cooling Contractor
- Do your research. Find out about license and insurance requirements for contractors in your state. Before you call a contractor, know the model of your current system and its maintenance history. Also make note of any uncomfortable rooms. This will help potential contractors better understand your heating needs.
- Ask Heating & Air Conditioning contractors for references; then call them. Ask about the contractor's installation or service performance, and if the job was completed on time and within budget.
- Ask your Heating & Air Conditioning contractor about ENERGY STAR qualified products that meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and offer significant long-term energy savings.
- Expect a home evaluation from you Heating & Air Conditioning contractor. The contractor should spend significant time inspecting your current system and home to assess your needs. A bigger system isn't always better; a contractor should size the heating and cooling system based on the size of your house, level of insulation, and windows. A good contractor will inspect your duct system (if applicable) for air leaks and insulation and measure airflow to make sure it meets manufacturer's specifications.
- Get written, itemized estimates. Sign a written proposal with a contractor before they begin work. It'll protect you by specifying project costs, model numbers, job schedule, and warranty information.
