Your air conditioner will not look out for you and give a heads up warning that it needs servicing before the summer heat arrives. Most likely it will wait until the hottest month of our Phoenix area summer. Your heater usually waits until the middle of the winter to go out too. Remember that your indoor comfort system is just like a car – neglect will lead to decreased performance, reliability and even shortened system life. Our scheduled maintenance program will keep your system running like it was designed to, saving you on monthly utility bills and keeping you comfortable all year long!

Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups. Contractors get busy once summer and winter come, so it’s best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall. To remember, you might plan the check-ups around the time changes in the spring and fall.
A typical maintenance check-up should include the following.
Check all gas (or oil) connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger. Improperly operating gas (or oil) connections are a fire hazard and can contribute to health problems. A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation. Either can cause the equipment to operate less safely and efficiently.
Inspect, clean, or change air filters once a month in your central air conditioner, furnace, and/or heat pump. Your contractor can show you how to do this. A dirty filter can increase energy costs and damage your equipment, leading to early failure.
