Heating and air conditioning service providers in Charleston, SC, can save you a significant amount of money simply by performing a seasonal inspection of your HVAC equipment. There are other benefits too. Preventive maintenance helps systems perform their very best, but it can also detect problems before they’re too big to manage.

Consider all the problems you can identify during an HVAC inspection:

Failing electronics and power problems are at the heart of most breakdowns.

A professional preventive maintenance check includes an overview of the electronic components. Many homeowners don’t have the tools needed to test how well wires are conducting charge or whether sensors are failing. They also check to see if your thermostat is working properly.

Dirty filters can lower your energy efficiency by 60 percent.

Air filters have an important role in your HVAC system. They prevent particles from entering your main HVAC system. This keeps the air running through your unit cleaner and prevents key components from being damaged by grit and grime. Over time, this debris is captured by the filter and begins to block the flow of air through the system. More fuel must be burned to force the air through. This makes it difficult to adequately heat your home and drives up your utility bills.

Clogged drain lines can lead to serious water damage.

Condensation sometimes builds up inside a unit, and that moisture is drained off and released through a drain pan and tube. If the tube is blocked, the water comes back into the drain pain. Eventually it will overflow, coating the surrounding floor and equipment with water. Over time, this can create rust and damage nearby carpet and drywall.
