What does HVAC service include?
For most contractors, annual HVAC services usually include filter replacements or cleaning, checking on wiring, connections, and controls as well as cleaning the blower, motors and other parts of the system. Most times, HVAC service technicians will also verify that the thermostat is registering properly.
Outdoors, the HVAC system will also require service. This includes verifying the coils and housing are clean, the compressor is working properly, and not in need of repair. Finally, the technician will also clean the drain lines and clean debris from around the outside units to make sure dirt is not getting into the system.
