You wouldn’t drive your car 100,000 miles without changing the oil. The same logic
holds true for your home comfort system. Regular preventative maintenance is the best
way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Pre-season maintenance is
also important. It can help to avoid a system failure in severe hot or cold weather when
you need it most, and it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
When Should I Do Maintenance?
The old adage is true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Below you’ll find our
Preventative Maintenance Checklist, which is our proven method to keep your system in the pink and your home in constant comfort.
For a system that heats and cools: Perform maintenance in the spring and fall.
For cooling only: Perform maintenance at least once a year, before the cooling season.
For heating only: Perform maintenance at least once a year, before the heating season.
