How Often Should I get my HVAC Serviced?

Your HVAC works hard! During our hot summer months here in Richmond Hill, your air conditioner keeps your home cool and comfortable. During the winter, it’s cold outside but warm and toasty inside. Not only does it keep your home cool or warm, it also removes dust, pet hair, dander and other nasty stuff from the air. Many people forget about the “V” in HVAC, but your unit is ventilating your home all the time.

Clearly, your HVAC can’t work this hard every day, all year long without a little TLC. You know it’s necessary to call for Richmond Hill HVAC service occasionally. This regular maintenance is the best way to avoid common HVAC problems and the need for HVAC repair. The only question is, when?

How Often Should I get my HVAC Serviced?

Every year, as the seasons change, it is time to think about having your HVAC serviced. According to most HVAC system manufacturers, you should have both the heating and air conditioning portion of your HVAC system serviced once a year. However, they suggest these two portions be done at two separate times. For this reason, it is good practice for a Richmond Hill homeowner to have their air conditioning serviced in the spring and their heater looked at in the fall. It’s worth noting that many people combine these and have one service call. As long as you keep up with this and do it annually, you’ll be okay.

During these service calls, your HVAC technician will be focused on a few key things. In the spring, he will service the air conditioner. This means checking:

  • The HVAC system equipment’s overall condition
  • The condenser 
  • The safety controls
  • The temperature 
  • Refrigerant
  • The HVAC system start-up
  • Evaporator Coils
  • Drains or Drip Pan

Mainly what he is doing is checking and cleaning all of the important parts to keep your home cool no matter how hot the temperatures reach outside. When he comes back in the fall, he will look at your heater. This entails checking and testing:

  • The heat pump
  • Heating modes
  • Defrost cycle
  • Backup heating source
  • Ignition, burner assemblies, and heat exchanger
  • Clearances
  • Vents
  • Combustion Air
  • Gas Pressure and Piping

It is important to have it serviced yearly to increase the life and effectiveness of the unit. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten to have it serviced this year. We can send someone out to service both your air conditioner and heater at the same time, if need be.

An annual or bi-annual HVAC maintenance appointment generally takes about an hour, although this can vary quite a bit depending on several factors. These factors include the type of AC you have, the size of your home, and the amount of time that has passed since your last HVAC service call. Whatever it takes to get your HVAC running smoothly for the long-term, we can do it!
