At Anchor Mechanical we offer HVAC inspections for clients in the Central Maryland area. During an HVAC inspection, our technicians will make sure that the mechanical heating, cooling, and air circulation systems in your home or business are functioning properly. Inspections are important because HVAC systems that are not maintained properly will consume more fuel and can increase energy costs. Older HVAC systems are also often less efficient than newer systems.

Benefits of HVAC Inspections
Regular inspections can increase the efficiency of your HVAC system, which means fewer problems down the road. A well-maintained HVAC system also increases the air quality of your home or business. Breathing in air that is contaminated or filled with allergens can cause breathing issues and irritate the lungs.
Air filters and purifiers that are maintained properly pick up dust, mold, lint, pet fur, dander, and other irritants from indoor air. Clients with allergies can breathe easily when the air filter in their HVAC system is able to remove allergens that often come through windows, such as pollen.
