With Winter Approaching, Now is the Time to Inspect and Maintain Your HVAC System

Scott Air, one of Central Florida's leading AC companies, says fall is the time to schedule a maintenance check of your home's heating system.

Online PR News – 15-November-2016 – Orlando FL – While it still might be a couple of months until the cold weather arrives in Florida, according to Scott’s Heating & Air Conditioning, one of Central Florida’s leading AC companies, now is the time to schedule a maintenance check of your home’s heating system. Like any complicated piece of machinery, a heater needs regular maintenance to run smoothly.

“You want to make sure your heating system is operational, safe, and as energy-efficient as possible” said Scott, owner of Scott’s Air. “When that first cold day arrives, you don’t want to turn on the heater and smell an unusual dusty odor or, even worse, discover that the heater isn’t working at all.”

During a regular Scott’s Air maintenance visit, the service technician will inspect the entire system, change the filter, check for leaks and ensure that everything is operational. Experts recommend scheduling a maintenance visit before the temperature starts to fall.

“There are three major reasons to schedule regular maintenance,” said Scott. “First is to improve energy efficiency, second is to lower the power bill in winter and lastly, and perhaps most important, is to avoid costly repairs.”

Scott’s Air offers a one-time residential maintenance or an annual residential maintenance agreement, which includes two maintenance visits each year to keep your system operating efficiently each season. Every Scott’s Air 20-point maintenance visit includes:

Check system for proper refrigerant charge
Check compressor and fan amps
Check and clean condenser coil
Check capacitors
Check contact points
Brush out electrical cabinet
Check all caps and valves for seals and/or proper snug fit
Check thermostat operation and mounting
Check blower amps
Check heat strip amps, circuit components and safeties
Check/evaluate evaporator coil for buildup
Check blower wheel for buildup
Check all electrical connections and wires
Change/wash filter
Check temperature splits
Lubricate all moving parts where applicable
Flush and vacuum drain line/pan and evaluate drainage
Check float switch operation
Clean equipment exterior
Check final performance and report necessary improvements

“Regular maintenance keeps your HVAC system working at its peak efficiency and can even prolong its life span,” said Scott. “Planned maintenance can also help you avoid potential problems by catching them before they go beyond maintenance and become necessary repairs.”
