Preventative Maintenance

What is Preventative Maintenance?

Preventative maintenance for  air conditioning and refrigeration units is the most savvy and cost-effective way to keep your units in good operating condition and dollars in your pocket. Investing in an affordable professional preventative maintenance plan covers all the bases . The bottom line is that industry studies have demonstrated that regular professional maintenance reduces common repairs up to 40 percent, increases the unit’s lifespan by 30 percent and increases the system’s energy efficiency up to 30 percent. Just as your car requires regular maintenance like a tune-up and oil change, an AC unit needs regular maintenance for optimal operation. Keep in mind that even a new air conditioning unit requires regular maintenance for optimal performance.

In addition to many service tasks performed, most maintenance plans offer a discount on parts and labor for customers. When HVACR technicians arrive for a maintenance visit, they have a long list of tasks to perform. Typical tasks include:
