Indoor HVAC Preventive Maintenance Checklist
Start with the areas that could present the most danger to your family.
Anything that can potentially be life-threatening or a health hazard should be at the top of the list. For this reason I would begin with a check for fire hazards:
- Lose wire connections that could create a spark.
- Gas odors.
- Odors of fire or burn smells.
- Ventilation pipes that could be throwing off carbon-monoxide.
The second category of HVAC preventive maintenance checklist items would be those that could potential damage your home.
In this category we include:
- Water leaks that damage ceilings, walls and floors.
- Combustible material around the heating unit burner.
- Gas leaks around pipe-joints.
- Restricted drain pain and drain lines.
- Unit burners for rust and debris.
- Dust in the blower motor.
The third category for your indoor HVAC preventive maintenance checklist system is air flow checks.
- Check the air ducts sealing at the unit walls to ensure no air is escaping
- Inspect unit panels to blower motor to ensure housing is tight
- Ensure all vent pipes are working properly and secure
