FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HVAC Maintenance

Q: What is a tune-up?
A: 
A tune-up is when an HVAC professional checks the key components  of your system and makes adjustments to the system to keep it operating  efficiently.

Q: I have an extended warranty on my HVAC system. Are tune-ups  covered by my extended warranty?
A:
 No. Extended warranties and extended service agreements do  not cover the cost of regular maintenance of your system. Tune-ups are  considered regular maintenance and are required by most manufacturers for your  warranty to remain in effect.

Q: When do I need to have my unit serviced?
A: 
You should have a regular tune-up twice a year -- typically at  the beginning of each heating and cooling season -- to ensure that your system  is working efficiently before the weather gets too hot or cold. However,  tune-ups may be scheduled at any time.

Q: Are seasonal maintenance plans worth the investment?
A: 
You should get a tune-up to ensure your HVAC system is ready for  the season. By spending a little twice a year, you can save a lot in energy  bills by keeping your system operating at peak efficiency. You also can avoid  costly repairs by identifying and fixing minor problems before they turn into  big ones. Plus, many homeowners don’t realize that their manufacturer  warranties may be considered invalid if they aren’t getting their unit serviced  twice a year.

Q: What brands or equipment do you service?
A: 
We offer tune-ups for all brands of central heating and cooling  equipment. Equipment serviced includes central air conditioners, furnaces, heat  pumps and air quality systems such as whole-home humidifiers, dehumidifiers and  air cleaners. Tune-up service is also available for oil furnaces, ductless  mini-splits and boilers in many markets.

Q: Do I really have to change my air filter often?
A:
 Yes. Changing your air filter at least once every months  will not only help you save on your monthly bills but also will help extend the  life of your system. Some filter system only require you to change the filter  media every 3 to 6 months.
