Air conditioning inspections & MAINTENANCE

A Well-Maintained Air Conditioner

An air conditioner and your HVAC system as a whole is a complex piece of machinery. Many parts work in unison to keep you cool. When any of the components start to fail or stops working altogether, your AC system can't do its job. Regular maintenance is the best way to prevent significant, costly malfunction. Catching problems early while the price tag and the effect on working parts

Catching problems early while the price tag and the effect on working parts are at its lowest, is the goal of a maintenance plan.

Be kind to your AC, have it annually inspected to ensure it is there for you when you need it most.

The last thing you want is to be surprised by a major air conditioning failure in the middle of the summer. Not only is that expensive, but it may take some time and effort to get your system working properly again than it does to maintain its working order. You don’t want to get hit with this disaster in the middle of summer during the high-demand season. Regularly maintaining your AC system is the best way to prevent such an issue from occurring.

Knowledge is Power

A performance inspection will help you plan for the future.

When you schedule a performance inspection, you will receive a cooling season inspection in the spring/summer and a heating inspection in the fall/winter. When finished our technician will go over their findings, give you a snapshot of your system's health and provide you with repair recommendations if needed.

Fact #1:
AC systems love to die on holidays, weekends, during a party or when your in-laws are visiting.

Although this could be a good excuse to send the in-laws to a hotel, it is best for everyone if we just avoid the breakdown in the first place.
