HVAC Maintenance Checklist: Annual Maintenance

Use this checklist to inspect your equipment. Routine inspection and maintenance will help your unit work efficiently. Prolonged lack of maintenance could result in costly repairs or the need for complete replacement.

    Inspect the Indoor Unit

    The indoor portion of your unit is comprised of many moving parts that need to work well and in unison in order to be effective, so it is very important that you check each one thoroughly. You should check:

  • Air Filters

  • Blower Assembly

  • Burner Assembly

  • Clean Exterior

  • Combustible Material

  • Combustion Blower Housing

  • Ductwork

  • Electrical Components

  • Evaporator Coil

  • Flue System

  • Gas Leaks

  • Heat Exchanger and Heating Elements

  • Ignition System

  • Motor

  • Safety Devices

  • While the System Is Running

  • You should perform several inspections while your system is running. Be sure to check:

  • Bulb Temperatures

  • Carbon Monoxide

  • Gas Pressure

  • Odors

  • Shutoff

  • Startup

  • Thermostat

  • Vents

  • Inspect the Outdoor Unit

  • The outdoor portion of your HVAC unit is just as important as the indoor portion. It should be inspected as often as the indoor section is. Be sure to check:

  • Base Pan

  • Cabinet

  • Coils

  • Compressor and Tubing

  • Control Box

  • Fan Motor and Blades

  • Refrigerant

  • Surrounding Area
