Ideally, you will have someone inspect your home’s HVAC components at least once a year. However, there may be times when you need emergency service or have a specific problem that needs to be resolved. What can you do to make your next service call as effective and efficient as possible?

Determine the Scope of the Visit

The first question that you should ask is what the purpose of the service call is. If you need an annual inspection, a technician will look at the furnace, air conditioner, and thermostat to make sure that everything is in working order. If you have a specific problem that needs to be resolved, a technician can focus on whatever the issue may be. At Island Heating & Air Conditioning in Oak Harbor, we can inspect, maintain, and repair both heating and cooling systems. Therefore, we can fix any problem that your HVAC system may have no matter how large or small it may be.

Is a Product Covered Under a Warranty or Service Agreement?

If you have a service agreement, an annual inspection may be covered as part of that agreement. If a furnace, heat pump, or condenser unit is under warranty, a repair may be covered per its terms. In both scenarios, there may be no need to pay for service. Therefore, it may be in your best interest to review a warranty or any other agreement ahead of time.

Document Anything That Doesn’t Seem Right

Taking pictures of a leaking condenser unit may help a technician to better understand what the problem may be. Recording a video of your furnace making a funny noise could also help determine if there is anything wrong with that component. Generally speaking, the more information that you can provide your technician, the easier it can be to find a solution in less time.
