Why HVAC Maintenance Should Be Done by a Professional

Your heating, ventilation and air conditioning or HVAC maintenance should be done by a professional for a number of different reasons.hvac maintenance

  • First and foremost, the system consists of far more than just the mechanical part that you see. There are additional parts, including the many, many feet of ductwork. It is that ductwork that can be the hardest to properly maintain simply because it is impossible to get to without the proper tools.
  • HVAC experts not only have the right tools to check those ducts but will also bring small cameras with them, visually inspecting all of the twists and turns that make up those ducts. That visual inspection is important for maintenance because it can reveal problems that currently exist or are about to become major issues. Holes or blockages in ductwork can affect performance of the system and can increase the heating and cooling bills substantially.

There Is a Reason the Experts Warn You about Self-Maintenance

Before you try to make do with your maintenance work, there are some questions about what can be done by the average homeowner and what should be done by a certified professional only. Sure, you can change a furnace filter and visually inspect the most obvious areas of the system, but you cannot expect to be able to inspect every inch of the ductwork on your own, and doing things like trying to tie your camera to a length of rope is not suggested either. If the rope breaks or gets snagged on something, you will have to call a professional not only to inspect the system that you were trying on your own but to retrieve your camera as well.
