At Comfort Air, we’re well-equipped to handle all of your HVAC needs. One of the most important parts of caring for an HVAC system is sticking to a routine maintenance schedule. As your Vancouver, WA HVAC maintenance experts, we can help you keep your air conditioning and heating system in top shape while avoiding expensive, complicated repairs later.

Why Is HVAC Maintenance Important?

HVAC maintenance is critical for so many reasons. Like many other machines, taking small steps and focusing on preventative maintenance can help you save money and avoid bigger issues. Parts can wear out and belts can crack. Some components require lubricant, while other parts can become dirty and unable to perform as well.

Proper maintenance can also improve the efficiency of your unit. An inefficient HVAC unit is working harder, which means that it could be shortening its own lifespan. A system that’s performing inefficiently can also cause your utility bills to soar. Properly maintained machinery can also provide better indoor air quality. A technician can check for contaminants that can affect the air inside of your home. Finally, keeping up with maintenance can reduce the risk of a breakdown during extremely hot or cold weather. You don’t want your HVAC system to let you down when you need it the most.

HVAC Maintenance Checklist

It’s usually a good idea to get your HVAC system checked out every fall and spring. Here are a few of the tasks that we can take care of.

  1. Checking the ductwork for leaks: A leak in the ductwork of your HVAC unit can waste energy and force it to work harder while not cooling or heating as effectively. We can measure air flow rate and pressure to make sure that your machinery is working at peak performance.
  2. Lubricate moving parts: This step can reduce friction within your HVAC system. More friction can lead to inefficient performance and shorten the life of your unit.
  3. Check wires and tighten electrical connections: Loose connections can damage your unit in the long term and adversely affect its performance in the short term.
  4. Look for mold and other contaminants: Do you smell something musty when you turn on your heat or air conditioning? That might mean mold on the coils or ductwork of your unit. Contaminants like mold, pollen, and dirt can all cause air quality problems or damage your HVAC system. A checkup and preventative maintenance can help you avoid an expensive issue later. To help avoid this problem, it’s also a good idea to keep leaves and other natural debris away from any outdoor units.
  5. Check fuel line connections and refrigerant levels: Our experts can check fuel line connections before the winter starts to ensure that your heat will work just fine all season long. We can also check refrigerant levels to make sure that your HVAC system operates at peak efficiency during the hot summer months.

So let the experts at Comfort Air assist you with all of your HVAC maintenance needs. Contact us today to schedule a repair or a checkup for the system that keeps your house or office comfortable all year long.

I was planning a heater upgrade and received a 24 month no interest offer from Home Depot. They sent me a list of contractors and Comfort Air was the only contractor that called me before I could call anyone else. The customer support, salesperson and installers were fast, competent and incredibly supportive. From the time that I contacted them until the heater was installed was fast and the new heater is a big improvement over what I had before. Highly recommend Comfort Air for fast, efficient and professional service. I feel comfortable that they will be responsive, should there ever be an issue with my new heater!

Bradford the technician has come to our home a couple times and is always professional. I especially appreciate the exceptional customer service in the office. Every time I call, no matter who answers the phone, they always help me and go out of their way to help me understand how to troubleshoot my thermostat/heat pump. Today, I needed to revise an appt time and Rosa called me twice today to make sure she set up the appt for a time that would work for me. Fabulous service!
