Why You Should Get an HVAC Inspection
When the weather is cool a broken air conditioning unit may not seem like a big deal, but once the sweltering temperatures that accompany Virginia’s spring and summer seasons are upon us that broken air conditioner is a huge problem. A broken HVAC system is typically the result of improper maintenance which is why having regularly scheduled HVAC inspections are extremely important.
Homeowners that pay for annual HVAC inspections are rarely surprised with a huge repair bill or air conditioning failure because their system is being regularly looked over with routine maintenance.
This inspection is a thorough review and assessment of each component that makes up your cooling system. During the inspection or skilled technicians will check the condition of your HVAC appliances, the electrical components for any failures, and they will also test the airflow throughout your home.
An annual HVAC inspection works to actively reduce your need for repairs while also improving the energy efficiency and air quality within your home. As a homeowner, you can rest easy knowing that your air conditioning unit is doing exactly what it is supposed to.
Many homeowners tend to wait until the last minute when it comes to appliance repair which could result in some very unpleasant news when you do finally schedule your HVAC inspection.
Why You Can't Do It On Your Own
You may be thinking that when it comes to keeping your air conditioning unit running smoothly that you can take care of locating the problem. However, unless you are a licensed HVAC technician the chances are that you will not have the knowledge to perform an inspection that thorough enough to determine whether there is a problem or not.
It is easy to brush advice about your HVAC inspection when it is coming from an HVAC company, but our team at Express Tech Air always has your best interests in mind. And the truth is most HVAC manufactures have designed their products with the need for annual maintenance. Parts of your HVAC system will start wearing out and dust and particles can cause blockages as well as energy inefficiency without regularly scheduled inspections and maintenance.
If your HVAC system is over 10 years old you may want to consider having spring and fall inspections. Once your system hits this age total replacement is often recommended over costly repairs. A regular HVAC inspection is also recommended because most system warranties do not cover damage that is caused by improper maintenance.
