How to Keep Your Home in Shape With an HVAC Inspection
Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning HVAC system is critical for maintaining a healthy, safe, and comfortable home.
One of the best ways to take care of your Idaho home is by scheduling a routine HVAC inspection and maintenance visit. But when was the last time you had your system checked?
According to the Department of Energy (DOE), only half of all surveyed households had their HVAC system serviced in the last five years. Don’t put your equipment at risk of inefficient operation or a breakdown—schedule a professional inspection and maintenance service.
Whether you want to be proactive about the health of your heating and cooling equipment—or need an HVAC inspection before you buy a new home or sell yours—Trademark Heating & Cooling is here to assist. Let us step in to handle all of your heating and cooling needs!
Why Schedule an HVAC Inspection?
You want to get the most value out of your heating and cooling equipment and extend its service life for as long as possible. A professional HVAC inspection can help you achieve this.
Without a routine inspection of your equipment, minor problems may go unnoticed and have the opportunity to develop into more severe—and costly—issues.
Benefits of Having an HVAC Inspection
- Ensures all HVAC parts are working safely and properly
- Supports greater system efficiency
- Uncover issues before they progress
- Reduces the risk of HVAC problems
- Offers peace of mind
What Happens If I Skip a Routine HVAC Inspection?
Failing to schedule routine HVAC inspections and maintenance visits can easily backfire. You put your heating and cooling equipment at a number of risks, including:
- Safety issues
- Minor problems developing into major concerns
- Costly repairs
A thorough examination of all HVAC components and parts can assure you how well everything works. While mechanical wear-and-tear is expected over time, an inspection tells you what is in less-than-top shape to stay ahead of anything that needs to be repaired or replaced.
In fact, opting for routine HVAC maintenance can decrease the risk of a complete system breakdown by up to 95 percent, according to the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA).
During an inspection and maintenance visit, we will:
- Check your thermostat and its settings
- Inspect and tighten electrical connections as needed
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Inspect your condensate drain line
- Clean the evaporator and condenser coils
- Clean and evaluate the blower motor
- Inspect and change your air filter if needed
You can depend on our experts for a trusted evaluation and maintenance of all heating and cooling components. Keeping your HVAC equipment in efficient operation is what we do!
HVAC Inspection for Sale of Home
It is also vital to have a professional HVAC inspection before you move forward with purchasing a new home or selling your home.
It pays to know the condition of the heating and cooling equipment in a home you plan to purchase. If you discover the system is toward the end of its service life, you can negotiate a credit towards a new system.
Similarly, if there is a problem that requires repair, you could request for the current owner to handle it before the closing and transfer of the home.
At the very least, you will want to know if you will need to equate the cost of a new system on top of the cost of purchasing your home—or if it’s a dealbreaker for you.
Are you selling your home? It is helpful to know the condition of your HVAC equipment. Is your system brand new and running efficiently? Highlight this as a selling point.
If you discover your HVAC system isn’t working efficiently, consider repairing or scheduling a maintenance visit so that it is in top shape when potential buyers visit your home.
