Next to keeping a clean filter installed in your HVAC system, annual maintenance is the most cost-effective way to ensure that your furnace and air conditioner are running as efficiently as possible. Our Energy Savings Plan is a preventative maintenance plan in which the air conditioner is cleaned and tuned in the spring or summer and the same is done on the furnace in the fall or winter. Maintenance is much more than just spraying out the air conditioner or vacuuming the inside of the furnace. All of the components, wiring, motors and refrigerant levels are checked during the tune-up. Hopefully, everything will be in proper ranges. If there is an issue, we can bring it to your attention and discuss any options so you can determine how you’d like to handle it.
While maintenance will not guarantee that parts won’t go bad on the furnace or air conditioner, problems may be found before they cause issues. For example, a motor may have higher than usual readings or a part may be making a louder than normal noise. Catching these things before they actually go out will not only save you a service call fee but will also keep you from being without air conditioning on a hot day!
We are occasionally asked: Why do you come out twice a year? Why not just do the furnace and air conditioner maintenance all at once? While it’s important that the maintenance is completed at some point each year, it’s preferred to complete the cleaning and tune-up just before or during the season that it’ll actually be used. That also means that we’ll be checking the filter for you twice a year and completing maintenance on other items such as humidifiers just before they’ll be used as well. By seeing a technician twice a year, we can ensure that all of your questions or concerns are answered about your system so that it’s running as well as it can all year long.
