Maintenance & Repairs

Reduce operating costs, maintain the efficiency of your system and extend the life of your equipment with planned maintenance.

ENERGY STAR (www.energystar.gov) is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommendation.

 

“Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs.

Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups. Preventative maintenance is required by most manufacturers to maintain the warranty on your equipment.”

Routine Maintenance

 

Routine Furnace & AC maintenance is vital to ensure worry-free heating and cooling. Schedule our Precision Tune-Up now, it can dramatically improve your indoor air quality and save you up to 30% on your monthly energy costs.

Benefits of a Periodic Tune-Ups

 

  • Ensures that your system is operating at peak performance. Proper system cleanings and tune-ups will reduce the load on your heating and air conditioning system by improving the air flow across the coils of your system.

 

  • Helps to avoid a system failure in severe hot or cold weather when you need it most, and it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control. Without regular Periodic Tune-Ups, an air conditioner unit loses about 5% of it's original efficiency for each year of operation. This means that the 12 SEER unit that you bought just a few years ago may be functioning like a 9 SEER unit today! The good news is that you can recover most of that lost efficiency through the Tune-Ups.

 

  • Studies show that with Periodic Tune-Ups a unit will maintain up to 95% of it's original efficiency. This means that the cost of Periodic Tune-Ups recovered very quickly in savings on your monthly electric bill and reduced repair costs. A properly serviced air conditioner will also do a better job of dehumidifying your home.

 

  • There are some things in addition to yearly tune-ups that you can do to help ensure a high level of comfort and proper system operation. First, buy good filters and change them regularly. Next, keep bushes and other materials away from the outside unit of your air condition.
