Maintenance
Your air conditioning system is a major investment in your home.  Just like your car, your air conditioning system needs proper care and maintenance to function properly.  Some of the benefits of routine maintenance are:
  • Lower utility bills.  Ensuring proper airflow, proper refrigerant charge and maintaining clean coils and blower motor helps maintain system efficiency.  Research shows that a dirty or unmaintained system works up to 20% harder to maintain temperature.

 

  • Healthier Air.  Clean filters and coils mean improved air quality for the entire household.

 

  • Increased Life of the System.  Routine maintenance can prolong the life of your investment.

 

  • Less emergency repairs.  Although it is impossible to avoid all HVAC repair situations, routine maintenance gives your technician an opportunity to catch and resolve potential service issues with your system.
