When Is the Best Time To Schedule HVAC Maintenance in Baltimore?

To keep your HVAC system operating effectively and efficiently, it’s important to schedule annual maintenance for both your heating and air conditioning systems.

With the coldest month of the year in Baltimore falling in January, we recommend scheduling your heating maintenance for fall or early winter. AC maintenance is best done in spring or early summer before the peak of heat in July.

This way, our licensed HVAC technicians can ensure that each system is operating properly and prepared for several months of consistent use. 

Benefits of Routine HVAC Tune-Ups

There are many benefits of routine HVAC maintenance, including:

  • Improved efficiency: Tune-ups include cleaning dirty components that limit energy efficiency. The result is lower utility bills.
  • Reduced risk of breakdowns: During our thorough inspections, we can catch minor issues and fix them before they can lead to a major problem.
  • Extended system life span: By reducing the overall wear and tear on your unit with annual maintenance, you’re less likely to need premature system replacement.
  • Increased safety: Tune-ups greatly reduce the risk of electrical fires from your HVAC system.

How Often Should I Service My HVAC System?

Annual service ensures that your system is well taken care of. We recommend scheduling your tune-ups between seasons — before you begin to use your system regularly — so you can have peace of mind that your heating or cooling unit is operates safely, efficiently, and reliably.

What To Expect During HVAC Maintenance

During a tune-up appointment, your HVAC technician will complete a variety of maintenance tasks, including:

  • Inspecting and changing air filters
  • Checking refrigerant pressure
  • Cleaning outdoor coils, burners, and flame sensors
  • Inspecting all motors and electrical components
  • Performing a carbon monoxide safety check and combustion analysis
  • Checking gas lines
  • Measuring indoor humidity
  • Inspecting thermostat operation

What Can I Do Between Service Appointments To Keep My HVAC Running Its Best?

Not all HVAC maintenance tasks must be completed by a professional. There are many ways that homeowners can help maintain their systems themselves, including:

  • Changing air filters every one to three months
  • Keeping a 2-foot clearance around your AC’s outdoor condenser
  • Keeping a 30-inch clearance around your furnace
  • Cleaning your vents and registers
  • Requesting prompt HVAC repairs when you notice abnormal function

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
