Much like your own health, preventative care for your HVAC system  will allow it to run more efficiently and have a longer lifetime. At Apple Valley Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend that people who own homes  or businesses in Victorville and throughout the High Desert region have  scheduled maintenance performed twice each year. Most often, we  recommend that people schedule one preventative maintenance appointment  in the spring and another in the fall. This helps to ensure the system  works well to cool the property in the summer, and keep it warm  throughout the winter months. Spring Scheduled Maintenance During the spring appointment, we will inspect your system to ensure  it will work properly throughout the summer months. This will help  prevent an unexpected repair during those intolerable warm days when you need your air conditioning the most. At this appointment the following services will be done:  

  • Inspect Compressor Inspect Wiring
  • Inspect Belts
  • Inspect Fan Motor Inspect Coils
  • Inspect Blower Motor
  • Check Refrigerant Fill
  • Check Running Pressure
  • Lubricate Motors
  • Change Air Filter
  • Test Thermostat
  • Test Capacitors
  • Fall Scheduled Maintenance

Some would say that the fall appointment is even more important than  the spring scheduled maintenance. This is because we check the carbon  monoxide levels at the fall scheduled maintenance appointment, and we  adjust the burners to make sure all emissions are at safe levels. This  is crucial to the health and wellness of the people who occupy the  property. At this appointment, the following services are performed:  

  • Inspect Heat Exchanger
  • Inspect Burner and Pilot
  • Inspect Burner Adjustment
  • Inspect Fan Operation
  • Inspect Limit Switch
  • Inspect Pilot Thermocouple
  • Inspect Draft Diverter
  • Test Electronic Ignition
  • Check Heat Anticipator
  • Check Temperature Increase
  • Replace the Air Filter
  • Inspect and Adjust the Belts
  • Lubricate Motors
  • Check for Carbon Monoxide

Scheduled maintenance is extremely valuable not only for the health  of your HVAC system but also for the health of the people who live and  work in the property. You will find that by having two routine  maintenance appointments each year that you will save money, save energy, increase the comfort level of the area and protect those who live and work there.
