What's Included In An HVAC Tune-Up?

April 27, 2023 | Blog

Getting your heating and cooling system maintenance will always be worth scheduling. When you schedule an HVAC tune-up with Brown Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, you’re signing up for reduced energy consumption, lesser repairs and savings on your utility bills.

How often should you get a tune-up, and what does our team do when we arrive? Here are some things you can expect when you schedule your seasonal HVAC tune-up.

Why Is A Seasonal HVAC Tune-Up Important?

An AC maintenance visit can go a long way for homeowners. You can expect fewer costly repairs and fewer breakdowns when our professionals replace old parts in the system. Your utility bills will lower because your system won’t have to work as hard to keep up with your set temperature. A thorough cleaning will also improve your home’s indoor air quality as there will be less dust build-up and moisture in your home.

You should schedule seasonal maintenance for your heating and cooling unit to prepare yourself for the change in temperatures. It would be a shame to have your system breakdown on a hot day, so it’s important to schedule routine visits.

Preventative Maintenance

Our professionals will prioritize performing preventative maintenance on your unit. We will look at each component in the unit and check if they are all working together efficiently. Here are some of the things we check on your HVAC system.


It’s important to take a look at the electrical wiring within your system in case of electrical damage. Wires can fray or lose connection to other parts of the system. We make sure that the wires are properly tightened to their connections and repair any damages we see in the system.

With your thermostat, we test for proper operation and recalibrate it if necessary. This will help minimize your energy consumption and give your system more accurate temperature readings. Your electrical parts are in careful hands when we perform your AC system routine maintenance.

Blowers And Fans

If left unchecked, your blowers and fans can have debris build up over time. Dust and dander can cause clogs in your system and create moisture in the air. This leads to more hazardous build-ups of mold and mildew in your home. To prevent these growths, we clean out your blowers and fans before they stack.

We measure your blower motor to make sure it’s in proper operation. From there, we clean out your air filters. Your air filters should be changed out every 1-3 months depending on the dust build-up.

Refrigerants And Condensers

Without regular maintenance, wear and tear can cause refrigerant leaks in your condenser lines. With damage to these lines, the cooled air will likely not reach your home the way you want it to. That’s why it’s important to make sure your system doesn’t have any leaks!

If there are any leaks, you could also have moisture problems in your home. We ensure that any parts that need attention will get the proper replacements and repairs necessary so your system is up and running smoothly.

Other Important Parts

Aside from the main functions of your unit, we will also look at the other important aspects of your system so that they don’t create larger problems in the future. Some things we will inspect include:

  • Safety devices
  • Bearings and belts
  • Contactors and capacitors
  • Service valves

Any part of your system from the bolts to the wiring can cause major damage to your unit if it’s not properly maintained. When you schedule your AC appointment, you can expect fewer hassles for your unit down the line.

The Service Was Excellent

We called late one evening after our AC went out. They were very responsive and technician David Monk was at our home at 8:00am the next day as promised. He diagnosed the issue, got the part needed, installed and tested it all by 10:00am. The service was excellent and David was so nice and personable. I would highly recommend this company.
