Questions to Ask Your HVAC Tech Upon Completion of Your Yearly Service

Annual HVAC maintenance is an essential part of keeping your heating and cooling system functioning at its very best. Should you fail to have your HVAC system serviced, your air conditioner might not be able to keep up with your home’s cooling demands during these sweltering Tennessee summers. In the worst case scenario, missing out on Precision Air’s twice-annual HVAC maintenance services could cause your system to break down years before the normal AC unit lifespan is up.

Additionally, annual HVAC maintenance also provides the opportunity for your trusted HVAC technicians to identify and plan for necessary repairs before catastrophe strikes in the heat of summer. In this way, annual HVAC maintenance saves homeowners significant cash in the long run– potential small fixes are much more affordable than an inevitable full-system replacement. In the event that a repair is more than a minor tweak, the annual maintenance inspection allows time for future financial plans to be made in preparation, rather than scrambling to find last-minute financing.

To get the most energy efficiency and longest lifespan for your HVAC system, regular maintenance is key. AC units and heating systems that are regularly maintained can last up to 15 years or more, as compared to units left unserviced which function around 7-10 years.

Questions to Ask Your HVAC Tech

What is the overall status of my HVAC system?

You should always ask your HVAC technician to give you a broad overview of the overall functions of your system. Knowing the status of your HVAC functions can give you a good headstart on mitigating future expectations–you will know when you’ll need a replacement, areas of concern that need special attention, and more.

Were any repairs made?

It is imperative to know whether the technician was able to identify any outstanding issues in your HVAC system during annual inspection and maintenance service. Asking your tech to explain the issues in explicit detail helps you to understand the cause of any other problems your home might be facing, as well as prepare for any urgently necessary repairs.

Can you provide a detailed summary of the maintenance practices that took place?

Always be sure to ask your technician for a detailed report and summary of the maintenance tasks completed during your annual maintenance check-up so that you have a record of the system’s history if ever you choose to sell your home with the system still in place.

Do you have any recommendations for future maintenance or upgrades?

Ask for as many details about future care for your HVAC system as possible! Being fully informed and prepared is exactly how, as a homeowner, you can improve your system’s efficiency and save money in the long run.  This can look like making equipment upgrades for energy efficiency or implementing a more thorough and rigorous maintenance schedule.

What are some ways we can improve energy efficiency?

Energy efficiency should be a top priority when it comes to optimizing your HVAC system. Talk with your technician about recommended tips for keeping monthly energy bills as low as possible and limiting your home’s environmental footprint. At Precision Air, we offer programmable thermostat installation–with Smart thermostat technology– and our technicians can provide information about zoning systems and other adjustment options you have for your existing equipment.

What is the expected lifespan of my current system and its parts?

This is a very important question to ask your trusted HVAC technician following each annual maintenance service. Receiving professional insights into the lifespan of your system and its components can help you plan both financially and seasonally for future replacements or other required repair services. This is beneficial for your comfort as well as your budget! Understanding your HVAC system’s lifespan is arguably the biggest advantage of engaging in our routine maintenance plans.

At Precision Air, we offer twice-yearly maintenance checks for your home or commercial property. Contact us today to map out your personalized service schedule!
