Tune-ups/ Preventive Maintenance Services in Kettering-Oakwood, OH

Did you know your furnace and air conditioner run an average of 1,812 hours per year? To put that into perspective, consider this: If you drove your car at a pace of 25 miles per hour for that length of time, you would cover 45,300 miles.

Cars spend less time in operation each year than HVAC systems, yet we usually spend twice as much money servicing our cars and replace them twice as often as we do our heating and cooling systems. A sure-fire way to correcting this pattern is with regular AC tune-ups by Kettering Heating & Air for customers in Kettering, Oakwood, Huber Heights, Miamisburg, Troy, and throughout the Kettering-Oakwood, OH area.

Tuning Up Ac

What We Do During an HVAC System Tune-up

Here’s a quick rundown of what happens during an A/C tune-up to show you why it’s important:

  • We check your thermostat and system controls to ensure everything turns off and comes back on at appropriate points, and will hold a set temperature. This is necessary to make sure your HVAC system will run as efficiently as possible so your heating and cooling costs don’t skyrocket.
  • We inspect the electrical components and repair them if necessary. We’ll check that there are no loose connections and make sure that the voltage and current are what they should be.
  • We inspect and lubricate moving parts, including the motors, fans, and compressors. These are all parts that see a lot of friction when functioning, so we make sure that they are all in good working order and properly lubricated so they’ll keep working well.
  • We clean your condenser and evaporator coils to make sure those are clean.
  • We inspect the condensate drain to be sure there isn’t a blockage or a blockage in the making. Since a backed-up condensate drain can leak, cause corrosion, and damage your HVAC system, it’s important to make sure it’s clear and cleaned out.
  • We check and adjust refrigerant levels. Having the right levels helps to keep your A/C system working optimally, so we’ll make sure you’ve got the right amount for the coming months, and look for leaks if your levels are low.
