If you’re a South Florida homeowner, you know how important it is to keep your A/C system in tip-top shape. With the warm climate we experience year-round, having a properly functioning system isn’t just a luxury, it’s a necessity. But what happens when your A/C starts to break down or simply isn’t working as efficiently as it used to? That’s where system inspections come in. Whether you’re in the market for a new system or simply looking to maintain the one you already have, we’ve got you covered.
Benefits of A/C System Inspections
An A/C system inspection is the process of having a professional HVAC technician come to your home and examine your system to determine how well it’s working. During an inspection, the technician will examine your system’s components, including the air conditioner, furnace, ductwork, and air filter. The goal of the inspection is to catch any problems early on and make sure that your heating and cooling system is functioning at an optimal level.
A/C system inspections offer several benefits to homeowners. Firstly, inspections help prevent critical issues from developing in your system. We can identify minor problems before they turn into significant ones, allowing you to take quick corrective action, which can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Secondly, inspections can improve the overall performance of your system, making it more efficient and effective. A well-maintained A/C system consumes less energy, which ultimately reduces your energy bills. Additionally, a well-maintained system will provide better air quality, making it healthier for you and your family.
What to Expect During an A/C Inspection
When you schedule an A/C inspection with Lindstrom, one of our experienced technicians will arrive at your home and perform a thorough inspection of your entire system, including the thermostat, air handler, ductwork, and outdoor unit. The inspection will typically take between 30 minutes and an hour, and the technician will carry out the following tasks:
- Inspect the condition of all components in the system
- Test the thermostat for proper operation
- Check the air filter for dirt, debris, and blockages
- Inspect the condenser and evaporator coils
- Check the refrigerant levels and pressure
- Check for any leaks in the ductwork
- Check the drain line and pan
Based on the inspection’s findings, the technician will provide you with a detailed report and recommend specific actions to be taken, such as repair or replacement of faulty parts, cleaning of ducts, or upgrading of the system.
How Often to Schedule an A/C Inspection
The frequency of A/C system inspections primarily depends on how often you use your system. Generally, it’s recommended to schedule an annual inspection. However, if you use your system heavily and all year round, which is quite likely in the case of South Florida residents, you may need to schedule an inspection twice a year.
Regular system inspections are essential to keep your heating and cooling system in good working condition, improve efficiency, and cut energy bills, as well as ensure that the air you breathe is clean and healthy.
