HVAC Check-Up vs.Cleaning

Friday, May 13, 2016

When you hire a heating and cooling contractor to perform maintenance on your HVAC system, the terminology can be confusing. Every company uses slightly different labels to describe their routine maintenance programs.



Often the terms check-up and cleaning are used synonymously; however, it is important to understand the difference. These routine maintenance programs range from a simple inspection, to a full blown cleaning. A thorough cleaning, which is important for the longevity of your unit, is much more labor intensive than a simple inspection.


If you are not sure what all is included with your annual maintenance program, we encourage you to ask your HVAC contractor. There is not an exact industry standard when it comes to a heat pump, air conditioner, boiler or furnace tune-up. If the price seems too good to be true, it most likely is!
