Comprehensive Home He ating Diagnostics And Repair
HVAC malfunctions are rated minor and severe. When the culprit is discovered early on through diagnostics testing, we consider this a minor repair. The damaged component is replaced and the unit is returned to its original state, operating as usual. When HVAC diagnostics does not detect the problem, there is a major going on inside the unit.
Malfunctions associated with clogged filters, ducts, and vents generally require minor repairs. Electrical problems, resulting in a complete malfunction generally require a more comprehensive approach. These are issues that need to be avoided altogether. Believe it or not, HVAC technicians do not have the answer to all problems that may arise.
Routine Home Heating System Maintenance
What is the key to an efficiently operating residential heating system? Of course, it is maintenance. Not just any maintenance, but routine maintenance with coil cleaning and filter replacement. Ask any HVAC technician how he/she feels about maintenance. You will get the same answer every time. Maintenance is the key to a fully functional, longer-lasting heating and air conditioning system.
Our NATE-certified technicians address several factors during the maintenance process. First, and foremost, the filtration system is visually inspected for signs of clogs and the filter is replaced. Second, the coils are fully inspected and cleaned to removal all dirt, grim, sap from nearby trees, and other debris.
