All About Our HVAC Checkups

To help you maintain your heating and cooling system, we offer seasonal checkups twice a year. These checkups help ensure your system is up to par and functioning effectively.

When can I call in to schedule my appointment?
Spring: March 1st – April 30th 
Fall: October 1st – November 30th

When do the appointments take place?
Appointments are scheduled by neighborhood and are conducted once the weather is the appropriate temperature. A heads up – if temps are still a little too warm (for fall season) or cold (for spring season), the timing might be delayed.

How much do the check ups cost?
A standard service fee ($75) applies and includes a single unit. Additional units are discounted to 50% of the service fee (additional $37.50 per unit).

What do these checkups include? 
If you think about the inspection you receive on your car when you take it in for regular service or an annual physical exam from your doctor, these checkups are much like that. We conduct an inspection that looks at the current state of your heating and cooling system.  This inspection includes the following:

  •       Check air filters
  •       Check and tighten all electrical connections
  •       Inspect evaporator coil, when accessible
  •       Check volt and amp draw on motors
  •       Check refrigeration charge
  •       Check start and run caps
  •       Visually inspect system for minor refrigeration leaks, where accessible
  •       Check time delay relay
  •       Check contactors
  •       Check main electrical whip
  •       Check compressor terminals
  •       Check disconnect box and fuses
  •       Check and adjust blower components
  •       Check and adjust burners
  •       Inspect fan blade
  •       Test cycle air conditioner for proper operation

We look for maintenance concerns, flag any problems and make recommendations to help prevent future issues with your system. The most common issues we see include a need for more Freon or capacitors or general maintenance.

If the inspection catches an issue with my system, what happens? 
If we do see specific issues, we’re happy to help address them. Many times we can even tackle them during the same visit. We’ll be sure to give you any specific costs up front, so you can decide whether you want us to perform any work.
