What is HVAC Maintenance?

HVAC maintenance is the periodic inspection of commercial or residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems to prolong equipment life, reduce repair incidence, and prevent costly breakdowns. HVAC contractors and property managers should perform HVAC preventive maintenance inspections quarterly or bi-annually, particularly before peak usage seasons.

What is an HVAC Maintenance Checklist?

An HVAC maintenance checklist is used to easily conduct preventive maintenance of an HVAC system in commercial buildings and residential properties. Utilizing digital HVAC checklists help easily identify signs of HVAC failure, address potential issues, and ensure that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are well-maintained and running cost-efficiently.

What are HVAC Inspection Report Forms?

An HVAC inspection report details all the issues found during preventive maintenance and follow-up actions necessary for maintaining HVAC efficiency. Key HVAC inspection report findings may also include a comprehensive cost estimate for any repair or replacement work to be performed.

HVAC inspection report forms typically cover the following key areas of HVAC equipment:

  • Equipment wear and tear
  • Parts to be cleaned, replaced or lubricated
  • Motors and controls
  • Condition of electrical connections and voltage
  • Coil temperature
