Why You Must Do Preventative Maintenance 

Dont skip the maintenance on your A/C system...

Here's why!

Air Conditioner preventative maintenance is an important component in maximizing comfort and extending the equipment lifecycle. A well-maintained system costs less to operate, provides better humidity control and helps improve indoor air quality.

 

You wouldn’t drive your car 100,000 miles without changing the oil. The same logic holds true for your home comfort system. Regular A/C preventive maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. 

 

Reasons you need maintenance every 6 months:

  • IDENTIFY PROBLEMS before they become costly emergencies. (94% of all breakdowns occur on non-maintained systems)

  • SAVE ENERGY! Lower utility bills because semi-annual tune-ups of your system improve efficiency and comfort. It will literally pay for itself.

  • AVOID EXPENSIVE REPAIRS by knowing that your system has been rigorously inspected and safety checked

  • INCREASE THE COMFORT LEVELS in your home by optimizing your entire system to run correctly 

  •  EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR UNIT by having it maintained and inspected by a professional
