With cooler temperatures on the way, it’s time to start thinking about your annual fall preventive maintenance.  Performing maintenance every fall is key to keeping your heating and cooling system running at its most efficient, saving energy, money, and more expensive repairs down the line.

In Connecticut, a service representative from Glasco Heating & Air Conditioning can come out to your home to go over your maintenance checklist with you. Scheduling an appointment is quick and easy and you will rest comfortably, knowing that you are taking top-notch care of your system.

The preventive maintenance will go over all of the following:

  • Evaporator coil
  • Start and run capacitors
  • Start and run delays
  • Flue
  • Flame baffle
  • Combustion air
  • Fan blades
  • Expansion valve
  • Refrigerant level
  • Safety controls
  • Vent system
  • Manifold pressure
  • Fan limit switch
  • Valves
  • Thermocouple

The check will clean the following:

  • Evaporator drain
  • Filters, replacing as needed
  • Condenser coil
  • Burners, adjust as needed
  • Blower wheel
  • Combustion chamber
  • Heat exchanger

Adjust all of the following:

  • Adjust bypass dampers
  • Thermostat calibration
  • Operating pressures

Additional maintenance tasks:

  • Tighten electrical connections
  • Measure temperature differences
  • Lubricate fan motor

Why is it so important to do all of these tasks?

One of the primary reasons for following this checklist is to protect your family and your home, by making sure your equipment is safe and running properly.  You will also have the security of knowing that your heating and cooling will be available when needed and you won’t be calling for service in the middle of a severe cold snap.  The best part?  You will save a considerable amount of money by reducing your energy usage, adding value to your home, and extending the life of your heating and cooling system.
