You wouldn’t drive your car without periodic tuneups and oil changes; likewise, you shouldn’t let your heating and cooling systems run without occasional maintenance. Preventive HVAC maintenance saves you money every month by reducing the utility bills in your Shawboro, NC, home. When you invest time and effort in tuning up your heating and cooling systems, you’ll see the difference in more efficient cooling and fewer expensive repairs down the road.

Simple Maintenance Tasks Go a Long Way

To keep your forced-air systems running at peak efficiency, you’ll need to change or clean the air filter every month. A dirty air filter will restrict airflow, lowering energy efficiency and potentially causing system malfunction. If your unit has a reusable filter, wash it thoroughly and let it air dry completely. If you use disposable filters, get your replacements from a reputable dealer to make sure they’re sized to fit your system. Never let the air conditioner run when you remove the filter.

Professional Maintenance Plans

Before each season, our technicians will inspect the HVAC system thoroughly. Tuning up your heating and cooling systems important, but if you’re serious about efficient, effective heating and cooling, it’s best to invest in a professional maintenance plan.

  • With our “PM Plan” we’ll service both your heating and cooling system in the same visit.
  • Alternatively, opt for a “PMA Plan” and we’ll clean your AC in spring or summer and your heater in the fall or winter.
