What's Included In An HVAC Tune-Up?

April 28, 2023 | Blog

If you know anything about the south, it’s that your HVAC system is your lifeline during the summer! It’s just as important throughout the year as well, with allergens making their way inside your home. Before you buy a bulk set of allergy medication, investing in an HVAC tune-up is a great way to increase your indoor air quality while also keeping your house cool!

At Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we are dedicated to serving the Louisiana community. When you’re scheduling your first HVAC tune-up, knowing what to expect can help provide peace of mind. That’s why we’re here to answer your questions and help you understand the maintenance process.

What To Expect From A Seasonal HVAC Tune-Up

The best times to schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment are before the summer and before the winter. This will make sure that your system is in great condition for extreme temperatures and anything else Mother Nature might throw your way! There are two major steps that you should see during a good HVAC tune-up.

Preventative Maintenance

One of the best reasons to schedule a tune-up is to prevent any small problems from getting bigger. A lot of technicians will tell you about the importance of cleaning and maintenance, as it can improve your indoor air quality over time. Some of the steps that your technician will take during a tune-up are:

  • Checking the burner
  • Emptying the drain line
  • Clearing the trap
  • Inspecting ducts for damage
  • Cleaning the main coil

Even though these happen during a tune-up, it’s always a good idea to make sure that your HVAC system stays clean. This will make sure there aren’t any major blockages that will ruin your air quality or system efficiency. This, paired with changing your filter, will give your indoor air quality a significant boost.

Basic Repairs

Another key part of tune-ups are minor repairs that will help your AC in the long run. This can be one of the longer parts of the inspection, but it is necessary to lessen the chances of your AC breaking down in the summer or winter. Some of the repairs our technicians can provide include fixing the following:

  • Ineffective safety devices and controls
  • Broken emergency power offs
  • Loose electrical connections
  • High carbon monoxide levels
  • Low refrigerant levels
  • Broken or warped fins

Depending on the amount of work needed, the time it takes to complete your tune-up may vary. This will also depend on the complexity and model of your unit, which may need more time to check everything.
