HVAC Tune Up Myrtle Beach

September 25th is National Tune Up Day: Time for an HVAC Tune Up!

Cool Cat here with a big event for your calendar! September 25th is National Tune Up Day for HVAC systems. Why is this national day of recognition so important? Because it reminds everyone to get their regular HVAC maintenance before the changing season switches the temperature to coooooool. What does a tune-up entail? Here are just a few of the things Carolina Cool includes in your HVAC tune-up to keep your system running as efficiently as possible:

  • Clean and inspect air vents, intakes and returns for blockages or leaks
  • Check the blower and blower motor for proper operation
  • Replace filters or properly clean removable filters
  • Check and calibrate thermostat
  • Ensure proper temperature response to adjustment
  • Check for excess humidity or condensation throughout the system
  • Clean and check drain and drain pan, apply treatment for algae or other microbial growth if needed
  • Test for airflow throughout the system
  • Clean, lubricate and inspect all belts, fans and other moving parts
  • Inspect all wiring for wear and tear, and ensure electrical connections are tight and secure
  • Check voltage and amperage
  • Test emergency shut-off switches and safety features
  • Inspect all accessible and visible ductwork for leaks or other potential problems
  • Check and test ignition system, gas lines and check for leaks (gas systems)
  • Clean, inspect and test outdoor unit(s)
  • Run a full heat cycle to check for any signs of malfunction
