With the onset of the cold Virginia winter, followed by the blistering summer heat, you want to ensure your HVAC system is always in its best working condition. By scheduling your HVAC system maintenance early, you can detect and repair problems before they cause system breakdowns.

The optimal time to prepare your HVAC system for colder months is late summer to early fall, while late winter to early spring is the best time to prepare for the warmer months. Preparing early allows for a thorough inspection of the compressors, evaporator coils, thermal expansion valves, and ductwork for faults and replacements.

 Advantages of Regular HVAC Maintenance Checkups

Scheduling regular maintenance checkups for your HVAC system:

  • Ensures your unit lasts longer and performs reliably
  • Prevents sudden breakdowns and shutdowns with timely system health checks
  • Increases your system’s efficiency
  • Saves the headache of costly utility and power bills
  • Results in better indoor air quality
  • Results in greater cooling/heating efficiencies

A typical HVAC repair and maintenance service includes:

  • Changing the air filters:
    • Our technicians at KD Mechanical ensure that your air filters are replaced with original replacements and warranties. We recommend the optimal size and fit of the filters based on the system you are using, saving unnecessary guesswork and ensuring longevity.
  • Checking refrigerant levels, pressures, and temperatures
