What an HVAC Company Really Does

Rarely do we give our heating and cooling systems until something goes wrong and then it is time to call your local HVAC company.  Other than emergency services do know what an HVAC company really does? Poorly maintained HVAC systems cost you money as they have to work harder to keep your home warm or cool.  Let’s look at all of the things an HVAC company can do for you.

Annual Inspections

If you notice your system isn’t working efficiently the first thing an HVAC company will do is carry out an inspection.  It doesn’t matter if you have a forced air system or central air, they will look at all parts of your system to not only find your current problem but any other issues that may come up in future.  It is a good idea to have an annual inspection done it helps to minimize the need for expensive emergency servicing.

Cleanings and Repairs

HVAC systems need regular cleanings to keep them running at peak efficiency.  The method of cleaning your furnaces and ductwork may vary but it improves the performance of your system and the air quality in your home.  Heating and cooling systems have come a long way and today they are incredibly sophisticated and efficient, a good HVAC company will use start of the art technology to clean and make repairs.

New Installation and Replacements

HVAC systems have a lifespan of 12-20 years depending on how well you maintain them but there will come a time where they just aren’t worth fixing anymore and it is time to get a new one.  Some HVAC companies will sell units themselves while others will make a recommendation on a new unit that works for your needs.  You can choose your own system but you will need an HVAC company to do the installation for you.

Support After Installation

After you get a new system installed your HVAC company should be there to answer any questions you may have.  They should also perform any servicing that is recommended by the manufacturer.  In most cases there are no issues after installation is complete but if you need any repairs done then they will be there for you.

Choose your HVAC company carefully, don’t try and repair your system yourself.  Repairs are never something that you should try and do yourself, it requires a specialist to repair, replace or service your HVAC unit.
