What's Difference Between HVAC Service and HVAC Maintenance?

There might be a few questions your asking yourself regarding how service works versus a maintenance contract. Here we'll try and demystify the difference between having your HVAC unit serviced and getting it maintained:

What does an 

HVAC service include?

When you schedule an HVAC service or emergency call-out, one of our team members will arrive at your location as soon as possible to assess the issue and provide a quote.

If you choose to go ahead with the repair, we will only perform the repairs that are necessary to restore your system back to full working order. In other words, if all we need to do is recharge your refrigerant, we won't replace any other parts during that visit. We know price is an important consideration in your choice of HVAC system technician and our company policies reflect that.

When we service an HVAC, one of our technicians arrives at your site to make a diagnosis. You can either choose for them to make the necessary repairs or just have them come back later to do so.

Whatever you decide, our company takes pride in leaving customers more informed about the functioning of their HVAC system after every visit. We believe that the best customer is an informed customer, sharing our experience and knowledge is just part of the job.

How often should  

HVAC be serviced?

Serving your heating and air conditioning is required done when repairs are needed. HVAC maintenance on the other hand can cover a much wider range of issues. Depending on your particular equipment, the type of work that will be necessary might vary quite a bit. For instance, an oil-fired hot water boiler would require more attention than a gas-fired unit to keep it in good working order. If you need any advice on what your HVAC unit might need, just give us a call and we can provide you with an estimate for maintenance.

When should I ask for HVAC Service?

Even if you don't notice any immediate drop in performance, there are some signs that your HVAC system might be in need of service. Catching small problems early can stop them from snowballing into larger issues. It doesn't always take a professional to find out if air conditioning services are needed, so what are some signs that you're in need of an HVAC service?

Odd Sounds or Smells

A loud noise coming from your unit could suggest a motor issue. If you notice any odd smells coming from your unit, it could be caused by a problem with the sealant on the compressor compartment.

Higher Energy Bills

If you're noticing that your energy bills are increasing, it could mean that your HVAC has to work harder than normal to keep the house at the desired temperature. This could mean low refrigerant levels or a leak in your piping system.

Unexplained Shutdowns

Little annoyances like when your system turns off in the middle of winter when it's below freezing outside will eventually add up and cause a larger issue. Maybe your system is turning back on after turning itself off for a while and wasting energy in the process. Either way, the issue will need to be identified and fixed.

Water Leaking

Water leaking outside is usually a sign that there's an internal issue, possibly with the compressor seal. This could be due to low refrigerant levels or an internal motor problem. It's also possible that you might need a new unit altogether depending on how much water is leaking and how often it occurs.

Water leaking indoors is usually traced back to a refrigerant problem. Either the pressure is too high or something has caused the refrigerant to leak out causing condensation where there shouldn't be any. If you own a water-based heating and air conditioning system, then piping is the most likely culprit.

If your HVAC system is getting a lot of attention lately, it could be because you need to have it serviced. If there are any issues with your system that can't be repaired by our technicians, however unlikely that may be, we will inform you immediately so that you're able to plan accordingly.
