Get Ready for Winter with an HVAC Checkup

The approaching winter may require some preparations at your home to keep you warm throughout the season. Installing weather stripping and stocking up on firewood are a couple of things homeowners might do as the temperatures begin to dip. 

However, one thing everyone should do is have their HVAC system checked and tuned by a certified professional. 

Around three million HVAC systems are replaced in America every year, often as a result of neglected preventative maintenance, which depleted the system’s lifespan. Preventative maintenance is key to long-lasting performance for your HVAC system, minimizing costs and keeping you and your loved ones warm all winter long. 

What a Winter HVAC Checkup Includes

Mansfield Sales & Service is the premier provider of HVAC repair in Southport, NC and its surrounding communities. Our fall service checkup includes inspecting and fine-tuning the following critical components of your HVAC system. 


The compressor moves refrigerant between the evaporator and condensor coils, which changes the refrigerant from gas to liquid as needed. 

Condensor motor 

The condensor is the outdoor portion of the HVAC system that’s responsible for condensing refrigerant vapor.

Blower motor 

The blower pushes the heated air through the dashboard vents in your floors, ceilings, and walls and into the rooms of your house. 


The evaporator works opposite of the compressor, converting liquid refrigerant to a low-pressure gas.

Drain pan

The drain pan catches the water that is removed from the air and disposes of it outside the home. 


Freon helps the evaporator absorb heat and prevent moisture on the coils from freezing over. 

Each component of your HVAC unit plays an important role in the overall performance of the system. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect and test each one to make sure it’s working as it should and clean and repair these components as necessary to keep your home cozy and warm all winter long.
