Heating and Cooling Inspection Services

While some HVAC issues can be indicated by a strange sound or odor, your senses won’t be able to identify every issue. Even a minor problem within your system can result in more strain when heating an cooling your home, which reduces the lifespan of your system and increases utility costs. HVAC inspections catch and fix these minor issues before they become costly repairs. Inspections also improve your indoor air quality, contributing to a healthier home.

It's not uncommon for people to put off a heating and cooling inspection until the unit is not working well, only to find out that the problem was a result of a lack of maintenance. Importantly, an annual inspection may help you avoid a costly and inconvenient HVAC breakdown. Here are a few advantages to having an annual inspection:


  • Identify and fix potential problems before they become major problems
  • Optimized performance / efficiency
  • Improve your indoor air quality


Don’t let your heating and cooling system fall into disrepair. Give it the TLC it deserves. To schedule an HVAC inspection, call American Mechanical at 913-725-8376.

Frequently Asked Questions: Heating and Cooling Solutions

HVAC stands for Heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It is one of the most important factors for maintaining quality air control inside your home or office. The goal of an HVAC system is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. 

A standard HVAC tune-up includes three essential stages: inspection, cleaning and service. Service may or may not include repairs; it depends on whether problems are detected during the inspection phase. Servicing an HVAC system includes a comprehensive check performed by a licensed service technician. We will inspect your system for any problems (leaks, electrical connections, wiring and efficiency)

At a minimum, your HVAC systems should be checked by a professional once a year. So if you have a standard central AC or a furnace, each of these units should be maintained, each year. If you have a heat pump system that you use year-round, then you'll want to schedule this service twice a year or every 6 months.

Regular AC maintenance servicing costs $75 to $200 for simple tune ups. Extended service contracts run $150 to $500 but include the entire HVAC system, both heating and cooling. For repairs outside a standard service, expect to pay $50 to $150 per hour for an HVAC technician.

The main reason homeowners do not purchase an HVAC service contract is the cost. They can cost between $150 and $500 per year, depending on the amount of services offered. If the system is new and still under a manufacturer's warranty, the cost may not be worthwhile. However, if you have an older system, it will likely be worth it.

Its best to let a professional do it. By far the best thing you can do for your air conditioner, furnace, and indoor air quality is to check the air filter monthly, and clean it or replace it as needed, usually quarterly or twice a year. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system's efficiency significantly.

Regular HVAC preventative maintenance service is the best way to prolong the life of your AC system and heating system as well as ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance when you need it most. Pre-season maintenance is also important, you should have a Spring AC Tune Up service and once again in the fall.

Your technician will check the circuits, safety controls, drain line, condensate pump, and all caps and valves as well. Electrical components will be inspected for signs of wear or damage and replaced to prevent sparking or failure. They will check that your outdoor unit is level for optimum performance
