What is HVAC Maintenance?

hvac maintenance in austin

One of the most important parts of maintaining your home’s comfort is having an efficient, highly-functioning HVAC system. That begins with HVAC maintenance—the process of maintaining your heater, ventilation, and air conditioner by regularly inspecting it for problems, replacing what’s broken, and cleaning it to ensure it’s in tip-top shape. By investing in regular, bi-annual maintenance, like Stan’s Gold Service Club, you can keep your HVAC system running smoothly, and fix problems before they become bigger issues, saving you money in the long-run.

But just what is HVAC maintenance, and what does it look like in Austin? Keep reading this short blog to find out!

What Does HVAC Maintenance in Austin Look Like?

While homeowners can technically do their own maintenance, it’s best to hire a professional technician who can fully inspect your HVAC system to diagnose and repair any potential problems, and ensure they’re properly fixed. This process should include three separate components–cleaning, testing & inspecting, and replacing–to ensure your HVAC system is correctly maintained.

Read more about each component of HVAC maintenance below:

Cleaning: Cleaning your HVAC system is one of the most important parts to keeping it working properly. The outdoor unit needs a good cleaning, as do various parts of your air conditioner and furnace, including your condenser coils, evaporator coils, and drain pans. At Stan’s, we’ll clean all the parts of your system, and replace your air filter as well, to ensure your airflow remains clean and consistent.

Testing & Inspecting: Your Stan’s HVAC maintenance technician will inspect various parts of your HVAC system, including capacitors, condenser coils, electrical wiring and ductwork. They will also check for strange smells or sounds—common indications that something’s wrong—as well as perform several tests and other measurements to check their performance. At Stan’s, our HVAC maintenance in Austin includes more than two dozen separate checks to ensure our customers’ systems are operating above par.

Replacing: While some parts of your HVAC system can be maintained, other parts will need to be replaced from time to time. For example, your air filter should be replaced regularly, as should your pulleys and belts, because they tend to wear out with time. At Stan’s, we do our best to provide our technicians with parts in advance, so they’ll always have whatever they need to replace what’s broken onsite.

At Stan’s, our technicians follow a comprehensive checklist to ensure that every part of our customer’s HVAC systems are cleaned, inspected, tested, and, if necessary, replaced, to guarantee that their HVAC systems are more than adequately maintained.

Are HVAC Tune Ups Worth It?

Many people wonder if HVAC maintenance in Austin is really worth it, and the honest answer is, of course it is! There are many reasons to get your HVAC unit serviced, one of the most important being that it will extend its life. When you avoid maintenance for a while, sooner or later problems will start to add up. Regular maintenance can help you avoid breakdowns caused by an inefficient, overworked HVAC system or operational mistakes (such as leaving your windows open when you run your AC).

What’s more, HVAC maintenance can lower your energy bills and provide you with better air quality, which can also extend its life. In this way, HVAC maintenance creates a positive cycle that keeps your HVAC system running as smoothly as possible for as long as possible.
