What is an HVAC Maintenance Checklist?
To conveniently perform preventive maintenance of an HVAC system in commercial buildings and residential properties, an HVAC
maintenance checklist is used. Using automated HVAC checklists helps recognize signs of HVAC malfunction quickly fix possible problems and ensure that systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning are well maintained and operate cost-effectively.
The HVAC Maintenance Checklist
Your technician will conduct the following when you schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment:
HVAC Maintenance Checklist- General
- To ensure that the cooling and heating system keeps you warm while you are at home and saves energy while you are away, check the the thermostat settings.
Check the system’s controls to ensure proper and secure operation. To ensure the machine begins, works, and shuts off properly check the equipment’s starting period.
Lubricate all pieces that are moving. Parts lacking lubrication cause engine friction and increase the amount of energy that you use.
All electrical connections are tightened and voltage and current tested on motors. Faulty electrical connections will cause your device to run unsafely and decrease the life of major components.
HVAC Maintenance Checklist- Heating Specific
Gas or oil connections that work incorrectly are a fire hazard and may lead to health problems. Improper burner operation is caused by a dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger. Either can trigger less safe and efficient operation of the equipment. Check all connections to gas or oil, gas pressure, combustion of the burner, and heat exchanger.
HVAC Maintenance Checklist- Cooling Specific
To provide sufficient system airflow for greater comfort levels, clean and change the blower components. Airflow issues can reduce the efficiency of your device by up to 15 percent.
Check the refrigerant level of your central air conditioner and change it if necessary. Too much or too little coolant will make the device less efficient, increase the cost of energy and decrease the life of the machinery.
Clean evaporator coils and air conditioning condensers. Dirty coils harm the ability of the system to cool your home and allow the system to operate longer, increasing the cost of electricity and reducing the equipment’s life.
Actions which you can Do Yourself
In your central air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump, inspect, disinfect, or change air filters once a month. You will be shown byyour contractor how to do this. A dirty filter will increase the cost of energy and harm your equipment, resulting in early failure.
The heating and cooling systems of your building will work more efficiently throughout the year with proper commercial HVAC maintenance, producing notable energy savings for your company. You may develop a personalized commercial HVAC Maintenance checklist for preventive heating and cooling treatment tailored to your company’s specific needs by collaborating with a trusted commercial HVAC specialist.
