CHECK UPS

Extending the lifetime of your equipment:

Annual maintenance of your equipment by a qualified technician is the most important thing you can do to extend the lifetime of your equipment. Having your heater checked in the fall, and your air-conditioner checked in the spring can head off any problems that may develop, keeping your system from breaking down on the hottest and coldest days.

Below is the procedure followed for our heating and air conditioning checkups:

Air-conditioning to be checked in the spring.

  • Check temperatures and pressures of refrigerant to determine if the right amount of charge is in the system
  • Clean outdoor condenser coils
  • Lubricate all open type bearings in motors
  • Check filter and replace if needed (customer must provide filter)
  • Check thermostat and calibrate if necessary
  • Check starting and running amperage for compressor and motors
  • Check all electrical connections and wiring
  • Check condensate flow
  • Check electronic components (capacitors, contactors, relays, etc.)

Gas heater to be checked in the fall.

  • Check heat exchanger for cracks
  • Check gas lines for leaks
  • Test all safeties and limits
  • Check all burners or jets
  • Check for proper pilot operation
  • Lubricate open type bearings in blower motor
  • Check vent for proper draw
  • Check filter and replace if needed (customer must provide filter)
  • Check all electrical connections and wiring
  • Check electrical components (capacitors, contactors, relays, etc.)
  • Check for proper combustion and gas pressure

Or electric heat to be checked in the fall.

  • Check all electrical connections and wiring
  • Check electrical components (capacitors, contactors, relays, etc.)
  • Check filter and replace if needed (customer must provide filter)
  • Lubricate open type bearings in blower motor
  • Check sequence of operation for heat strips

We recommend having these services performed on your equipment twice a year. Regular checkups will keep your system running safely and efficently throughout the year and allow you to get the longest life out of your equipment.
