Fall Maintenance HVAC

What to Expect During Your Fall Maintenance HVAC Appointment

September 19, 2017

Fall maintenance is an important part of securing your comfort through the holiday season, even in a temperate climate like Summerfield, Florida. Once you understand how much maintaining your unit regularly will benefits you, you’ll never skip or put it off again. Here are the important tasks a service technician will perform as part of fall maintenance to ensure your HVAC system is operating efficiently. 

Inspect the Electrical Components

When your HVAC system’s motor has a problem, treated air won’t blow through your home. That’s why it’s important to measure how much power the motor uses. We also test relays and contactors as well as tighten the electrical connections within your system.

Measure the Temperature

We check both your sub cool and super heat measurements. If the temperature is too low or too high, it causes coil issues. Though you won’t be running the AC much in the winter, catching an issue now is important.

If you have a heat pump or a dual heat system like many people in Florida, you need those coils to work throughout the winter. We will also calibrate your thermostat for accurate readings.

Examine the Outdoor Unit Closely

Your outdoor unit probably needs some care after the Florida summer. Sand and debris easily get inside, even if you do your part to keep it clean. We’ll wash and wax your outside unit, preparing it to withstand the cooler months. It’ll still be running if you have a heat pump, so this fall care is essential to keeping the outdoor unit happy.

Winter in Florida gives your system a bit of a break, but that doesn’t mean you can skip important fall maintenance. To make an appointment with a qualified Sun Kool tech, call us at 877-962-2120.
