Houston Air Conditioning & Heating Maintenance in Houston, TX
Whether you have a central air conditioner, heat pump, furnace, boiler or ductless system, your HVAC systems work very hard throughout the year to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. Over time, that means they’ll accumulate a fair amount of wear and tear, lowering energy efficiency and increasing the risk of expensive future issues. Good home maintenance is one way to head off those issues, but if you’re serious about investing in your long-term comfort, you need professional HVAC preventive maintenance. At TemperaturePro, we’re proud to offer affordable preventive maintenance plans throughout the Houston NW area.
A Typical Maintenance Visit
Heaters and air conditioners are relatively complex machines with many interrelated components. As experienced HVAC contractors, we understand the purposes of those components and know how to make sure they’re in good working order. Here are some of the steps we’ll take to maintain your heating and cooling systems.
- Inspect and, if necessary, clean or change air filters
- Lubricate all moving components
- Check system controls
- Calibrate the thermostat
- Clean the system thoroughly
- Inspect fuel lines for leaks
- Carefully clean evaporator and condenser coils
- Clean exhaust fins
- Inspect burners, ignition systems and heat exchangers
- Tighten and inspect electrical connections
In addition to those routine maintenance steps, we’ll conduct a full system inspection to ensure that everything is in good working order.
Benefits of Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance
The key benefit of preventive maintenance is, of course, prevention. Having your HVAC system repaired can easily cost hundreds of dollars, and if the issue is severe enough to require replacement, those costs can run even higher. At TemperaturePro, we do our best to make repair and replacement affordable, but the best way to reduce those costs is to eliminate repairs entirely. During maintenance visits, we’ll clear up emerging problems while they’re still small instead of waiting for major repairs.
Preventing repairs is a major cost saver in the long term, but in the short term, you’ll benefit from preventive maintenance in another way. Our technicians will adjust your system’s calibration to make sure it runs at peak efficiency, and measures such as cleaning and lubrication also help to minimize energy usage. You’ll see the difference right away on your utility bills, and over time, those little savings go a long way toward defraying the cost of seasonal maintenance.
Beyond those financial savings, there’s an invaluable sense of comfort that comes from knowing your HVAC systems have been professionally maintained. You’ll be able to rest assured that your air conditioner won’t shut down during a July heat wave and your furnace will keep going strong throughout the winter. While there are no guarantees, investing in preventive maintenance now will put your family in a great position to enjoy efficient, reliable comfort for many years to come.
