What are the benefits of an HVAC inspection?

Your HVAC system has a lot of moving parts and is put under a great deal of stress during Southern summer (and sometimes spring and fall) months. Getting your unit checked out and fixed up every year is the best way to keep it running in top shape. Preventive maintenance improves your system’s efficiency, performance, and lifespan — giving you the greatest value for your dollar.


The benefits of an annual HVAC inspection from Lee Company:

  • It increases the lifespan of your current equipment
  • It heads off repair issues before they become major expenses
  • See the condition of your equipment before and after with our xOI technology
  • Compare performance year over year, so you know when it’s time to replace—before you have to
  • It increases safety by alerting you to “invisible” threats to your family’s health (IAQ, carbon monoxide, etc.)


The importance of routine safety and efficiency checks

Your HVAC connects with several of the major systems in your home, including electrical systems and natural gas lines. Without preventative maintenance, the years of regular usage can drastically impact the condition and operational safety of your HVAC system. Our technicians will conduct a thorough inspection to ensure that your system is in safe, working order.

Air quality is another area of concern. Clearly, your HVAC system has a direct impact on the quality of the air you breathe. Our technicians will check your equipment for dirt, dust, and grease buildup. In most cases, cleaning and maintenance can be performed immediately. If there’s a larger issue, such as duct cleaning or HVAC replacement, an additional appointment will be required.
