3 Critical Steps of the Heating and AC Repair Process, Bristol, Connecticut

Your heating and AC system is a critical component to keeping your home’s temperature stabilized throughout the varying seasons. When your furnace gives out and you have to look into boiler and furnace repairs, it can leave the entire family flustered. Heating and AC repair services can promptly address any issues you experience with your furnace, but as the homeowner, it’s wise to know what to expect from the process, so you can plan ahead. 

Below are three things you can expect from a heat repair job at home:

  • heating and ACDisconnection: Before the tuneup can commence, your HVAC expert has to disconnect the existing furnace from its power source. Keeping the furnace unplugged will ensure the technician gets into the deepest parts of the unit and inspects the component thoroughly without the risk of injury. This means your home will lose some heat during the repairs, so be prepared to bundle up for warmth.
  • Clean & Grease: The technician can check the various interior connections to ensure the wiring is in place. Then, they’ll remove any debris that has gotten caught in the component, clean out residual dust, dirt, and grime, and apply a lubricating solution to the parts to keep the system operating smoothly. An inspection of the gas lines and connection points will take place for safety and efficiency. This also includes restoring the ventilation components for effective airflow.
  • Testing: Once the repairs are completed, your technician will most likely ask to do a carbon monoxide test to make sure there is no risk of poisoning in your home. This test is quick and can be performed at the end of your tuneup appointment—it will go a long way toward keeping your family safe and healthy.
