Preventative Maintenance Plans

Why do I need a maintenance program?

We all know what happens to an expensive automobile if the engine’s oil is never changed. We wouldn’t think of going on a long trip through the desert or mountains without first checking the tires and brakes. Why would we completely ignore a complex and expensive heating and air conditioning unit until it fails? Maintenance plans help ensure long term success for your air conditioning and heating units. It helps keep your system in tip top shape and saves you money in the long run.

Why pay for a maintenance program when there's a chance that my system won't break down?

There’s an old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  However, there’s another saying that makes much more sense, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”

A heating and air conditioning system is a very large investment.  It can cost $4000 to $6000 to replace an average system.  Plus, you depend on your HVAC system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s more than any other appliance. You want your air conditioner, heat pump, thermostat, and compressor to last a long, long time. It needs and deserves a little loving care!

What does a maintenance plan consist of?

We clean and lubricate all the moving components in your system.  Dirt and build up will cause your system to use more electricity and can also make you sick!  Dirt wears out motors and bearings. To prevent these things from happening, we clean all parts of your unit! We also clear condensation in drains which help prevent damaging water leaks.

We fine tune your system for maximum temperature comfort and low utility bills.  By adjusting combustion and cooling controls, we get you the best performance possible and help lower your utility bills.

We repair coolant (“Freon”) leaks.  – Your system should not need recharging every year.

We test safety controls and check for gas and carbon monoxide leaks.  Poorly maintained systems can be DEADLY! With a trained eye, we look for signs of gas leaks and test safety controls to make sure everything is working correctly.

We install quality air filters that really work!  Custom made air filters keep your system and home clean; they also help protect your health. We provide filters for the entire year and remind you when it’s time to change them.
