Maintaining the air conditioning system in your home is a smart investment. Regular maintenance not only avoids potential breakdowns, but it also ensures that the entire system is working smoothly. We recommend yearly check–ups for your AC system. These visits provide the opportunity for our technicians to make sure your system is working efficiently and that there are no hidden warning signs. We can make most of the necessary repairs on the spot.

During a tune–up, we check the following:

  • Test efficiency and thermostat
  • Test all electrical and safety controls
  • Replace any broken or worn parts
  • Check refrigerant lines
  • Charge refrigerant if necessary
  • Change or clean filters
  • Inspect the ductwork for central AC systems
  • Test airflow for optimal performance

Don’t wait until your air conditioner has shut down. Call us today to schedule your annual tune–up. Our expert technicians will have your heat pump, ductless system, or evaporative cooler tuned up and running like new before you know it.

As a homeowner, there are certain simple tasks you can do yourself on a regular basis. For central AC systems and heat pumps, clean or change air filters at least once a month. Some filters are designed to last for three months, but you should ask your technician or consult the owner’s manual if you aren’t sure. For homes with pets, filters need to be changed more often, as well as during times of heavy use. A dirty filter can reduce efficiency or potentially damage the equipment, causing breakdowns or early failure. Call us any time for more maintenance tips.
