Maintenance of Home Air Conditioning and Heating Systems

When it comes to the installation of your HVAC system, it's crucial to choose a system that suits your home's size and your specific needs. Our team of experts will guide you through the process, ensuring you make an informed decision that will provide you with efficient and reliable heating and cooling. Once your system is installed, regular maintenance is key to its longevity and optimal performance. Here's what you can expect from our maintenance services:

  1. Thermostat Settings Check: We'll ensure your thermostat is set to provide comfort when you're home and save energy when you're away

2. Home Heating System: Set your thermostat above a temperature that you can withstand overnight. You will most likely be sleeping under covers and blankets. You can always turn up the temperature to a comfortable setting as you wake in the morning and start moving around the house. Most people can withstand a temperature of 65 degrees overnight while they are sleeping and then raise the temperature to around 70 or 72 degrees during the day.
3. Electrical Connections Tightening: Loose electrical connections can lead to unsafe operation and reduce the lifespan of your system. We'll tighten all connections and measure the voltage and current on the motors

4. Lubrication of Moving Parts: Proper lubrication reduces friction in motors and decreases electricity use.

5. Air Filter Cleaning or Replacement: A clean air filter improves air quality and enhances system efficiency

6. System Controls Check: We'll ensure your system starts, operates, and shuts off properly

7. Cleaning of Coils: Dirty coils can reduce your system's ability to cool your home, leading to increased energy costs and reduced equipment life

8. Refrigerant Level Check: We'll adjust your central air conditioner's refrigerant level if necessary to make your system more efficient

9. Blower Components Cleaning and Adjustment: Proper system airflow increases comfort levels and reduces the system's efficiency loss

Regular maintenance can lead to energy savings, increased comfort, enhanced air quality, extended equipment lifespan, lower repair costs, and improved reliability
