If you want to get the most out of your air conditioning system, you need to properly maintain your equipment. Doing so will ensure your air conditioner unit performs to its full potential. Regular maintenance can extend the life of your equipment, promote a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment, help you avoid preventable repairs, and helps avoid unexpected breakdowns during the hottest days of the year. It can even be required by some manufacturers to protect your warranty.
Bryant Heating & Air Conditioning‘s preventative maintenance service is ideal for all brands and types of air conditioners, including heat pumps, split system air conditioners, mini-split air conditioners, packaged air conditioners, and combined systems. It consists primarily of a multi-point system tune-up, that involves checking the airflow, changing filters, cleaning the outdoor condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking the capacitors and refrigerant, inspecting all electrical and moving parts, and other parts of your system that can affect the operation and efficiency of your system. During our inspection, we may find that there are opportunities to improve your indoor comfort and energy efficiency by upgrading or making repairs to your air conditioner, thermostat, or ductwork. If we do, then we will review them with you and explain the costs and benefits of each.
For the best results, it is generally recommended that you have your air conditioner system tuned up biannually by a qualified and experienced HVAC technician. For those committed to proper AC maintenance, Bryant Heating & Air Conditioning offers annual maintenance programs for air conditioners. These affordable programs include two complete system tune-ups a year, priority scheduling, and a 10% discount on all repairs. Plus, AC maintenance program members will not have to pay the $89 fee that we usually charge customers when we send out one of our technicians to perform the initial complete system diagnostic. Our air conditioner maintenance program can also be customized to meet the needs of those with multiple systems or specialized equipment.
