Maintenance on your new system is essential for proper operation and efficiency. Here is a recommendation

of Maintenance on different types of systems.


Air-conditioning with electric heat-------------------At least once a year before Summer

Air-conditioning with gas heat*-----------------------At least twice a year before Summer and before Winter

Heat pump with electric back up heat--------------At least once a year before Summer

* All gas appliances should be checked for gas leaks twice a year


The Importance of maintenance on your system

*(Here is an example of the maintenance of a heat pump system)

When we service your system we perform or check the following:

1. Clean the condenser coils - If dirty can cause high amp draw and strain on compressor which amounts to high power bills*

2. Check/clean the evaporator - If dirty can cause loss of capacity in cooling & heating which extends runtime*

3. Check for proper charge of refrigerant - If incorrect can cause loss of capacity in cooling & heating which extends runtime. Also this can damage the compressor*

4. Check all electrical connections - If loose can interrupt proper operation and even damage major electrical components*

5. Check proper operation of thermostat and system functions - Can interrupt proper operation and distort efficiency*

6. Check for clean air filtration - If dirty can cause loss of capacity in cooling & heating which extends runtime*

7. Check for air duct leaks - If leaking to the outdoors can cause loss of efficiency and capacity*

8. Check amperage on compressor, fan, and blower - If not with in specs could be caused by one or more of the above or defective component*

* These items may cause excessive energy consumption and shorten the life of your system
