What to Expect During an HVAC Inspection

By Cleaveland HVAC Contractors.


Regular HVAC inspections can help improve your heating and cooling system's performance by finding and fixing potential problems. It is likely that this summer will be much hotter than usual. Therefore, it is crucial to schedule an HVAC inspection every year. Your trusted heating and cooling company should schedule a biannual service to maintain your home's comfort throughout the year.


Preventive maintenance like cleaning ducts, cleaning ducts, or examining for warning signs will help keep your HVAC system running efficiently, which can save you money and reduce your cooling bills. Your HVAC expert will conduct periodic checks to make sure your system is running smoothly. He will also provide information about your heating or cooling system's age, condition, and possible modifications.


Let's look at what an HVAC inspection will look like and what homeowners can expect.


Important Safety Tips for the System


Your HVAC system is comprised of moving parts and electric systems. If your furnace or heater is gas-powered, you will also find a combustion unit in it. Weather, dirt, and wear can all cause air conditioning components to become less reliable over time. This could pose a danger to safety if they aren't inspected regularly.


Your technician will conduct an HVAC inspection to inspect the HVAC system. This will ensure that no safety hazards are present. Your HVAC specialist will also inspect any built-in safety features to make sure they are working properly. Your HVAC specialist will inspect any flies or vents to make sure they are properly vented.


The Efficiency of Your Heating & Cooling System


A home comfort inspection will determine if your furnace and air conditioner meet your current needs. It also helps to ensure safety. The efficiency of your HVAC system will depend on how well the appliances are installed. Your HVAC system will need to work harder to maintain your home's comfort. It will consume more energy and incur higher monthly cooling bills if it is not in good condition.


The same goes for a system that doesn't fit your needs or isn't correctly sized. This will result in wasted energy and less comfort. An HVAC inspection can reveal areas that need to be repaired or replaced in order to improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.


Minor repairs, cleaning, and lubrication are usually all that is needed to keep your HVAC system in peak condition. However, your technician will also notice issues such as improperly sized appliances and age.


Your HVAC specialist should conduct these services as part of your tune-up.


  • The coolant level and pressure should be checked

  • Thermostat adjustment

  • Inspection and tightening all electrical systems, including wires, connections, and capacitors.

  • Cleaning the condensate drain & evaporator coil

  • You should inspect the condenser, outdoor disconnect, and fan motor.

  • If necessary, lubrication

  • Furthermore, efficiency and safety assessments will be enhanced.


How can an HVAC inspection save me money?


Although an HVAC tune-up may cost a bit more upfront, it will help you save a lot in the long run. You should avoid common air conditioner malfunctions such as a clogged drain, a failing compressor or a blown capacitor. But, it's not enough to avoid costly repairs. You'll save money on your electricity bills, prolong the life span of your equipment, as well as have reliable cooling throughout the summer.


How do I find out when my inspection should occur?


At the beginning of each heating or cooling season, it is recommended that you schedule tune-ups twice per year. You can schedule HVAC maintenance at any time. However, you will want to ensure your HVAC system is working properly before it gets too hot.
