Preventative maintenance checks prevent utility overpayment and avert system failures through predictive maintenance that can help extend the life of your system. The old but true cliche' "out of sight, out of mind" is often the reason for neglected maintenance guidelines for your system. Our systems are usually installed where they aren't seen, such as in a section of the basement, a closet, on rooftops, or in mechanical rooms, making them easy to ignore. The systems are simply taken for granted until they fail. Decreased efficiency, utility overpayment, discomfort, loss of productivity, eventual premature replacement, and higher repair costs are the result. Just because your system is out of sight, does not mean it can be neglected. Getting your system checked twice annually is just as important as changing the oil in your car every 3,000 miles!
What should I expect from my service technician while performing a preventative maintenance check?
Note: For heat pump applications, winter season inspections repeat a number of the summer procedures plus several additional checks. Maintaining semi-annual preventative maintenance checks for heatpumps is also important.
