Fall Heating System Checkups: Don’t Get Caught in the Cold!

Your heating and cooling system runs in the background, quietly humming along each day to keep your home comfortable year-round. It can be easy to forget, even — out of sight, out of mind. 

That is, until it stops working.

Luckily, that kind of disruption to your life is often avoidable with good preventative care and maintenance. Platinum Home Warranty offers seasonal check-ups for your HVAC system from October 1 – November 30 for fall to make sure it’s up to par.

What is included in an HVAC check-up?

We look for maintenance concerns, flag any problems, and make recommendations to help prevent future issues. Depending on the season, thorough inspection includes:

  • Check air filters
  • Check and tighten all electrical connections
  • Inspect evaporator coil, when accessible
  • Check volt and amp draw on motors
  • Check refrigeration charge
  • Check start and run caps
  • Visually inspect system for minor refrigeration leaks, where accessible
  • Check time delay relay
  • Check contactors
  • Check main electrical whip
  • Check compressor terminals
  • Check disconnect box and fuses
  • Check and adjust blower components
  • Check and adjust burners
  • Inspect fan blade
  • Test cycle air conditioner for proper operation

What if an issue is found?

If the technician catches an issue during the inspection, they will remedy the problem during the visit if possible. If the repair can’t be completed during the inspection visit, we will quickly coordinate follow-up repair services at your convenience.

How do I get on the schedule? 

Platinum Home Warranty HVAC check-ups are scheduled during two seasonal periods each year: October 1 – November 30 for fall and March 1 – April 30 for spring. Request your checkup online or call 602-733-5000, and we’ll get you scheduled.
