Planned Service is what you wish you would have done, when your car quits with steam rolling out of the hood on a lonely country road at night. At that time you still need SERVICE, you just don't get to PLAN as well. For most systems we suggest this be done 2 times per year, however some situations need more and in some cases once per year is adequate. What we call Planned Service falls in three categories.
This is where we test and inspect your systems in attempt to find any parts that are on their last leg. Some rather inexpensive parts, like capacitors, contacters, relays, limit switch, and other safeties can often times be found in need of replacement before they cause more expensive components to go bad. We also like to make minor adjustments to superheat, temp rise, and gas pressure that help to lengthen the life of major components. We oil or grease any motors that do not have sealed bearings. In general we are trying to PREVENT a future premature failure or breakdown. This category could save you over a thousand dollars, or may not save you anything more than peace of mind.
This service includes things like cleaning both indoor and outdoor coils when needed for maximum air flow and heat transfer, adjusting furnace burner air mixture, checking and adjusting refrigerant charge, changing air filters, cleaning blower blades if needed, and changing humidifier pads. This category often saves more in utility costs than the whole PLANNED SERVICE costs.
This service is much more important in the fall before you turn on your furnace for the season. We inspect the heat exchanger for cracks that could allow Carbon Monoxide to enter your home or building. We clean burners and the surrounding area. We check the flue for obstructions that would prevent gases from exiting your home. We check for gas leaks in and around your heating system. There are several other tests we make that are unique to specific models and types. We won't try to estimate the value of this category for you.
If you would like, we would be happy to put you on our PLANNED SERVICE LIST. We will then, send you a postcard twice each year, one in the spring and one in the fall reminding you that it is time for your Planned Service. If you call we will give you PROMPT QUALITY PLANNED SERVICE. If for some reason you do not wish us to come, you can simply throw the postcard away and we will not hassle you.
Please call us today and ask us to put you on our PLANNED SERVICE LIST.
1. Often times a small inexpensive part fails or an improper charge of refrigerant if not caught quickly can cause a much more expensive part like the compressor to fail prematurely. Planned Service give us the opportunity to find those problems before they cost you thousands of dollars.
2. Cleaning evaporator coils, blower wheels and condensers as well as fine tuning refrigerant charge, superheat, subcooling, blower speed, static pressure and temp rise or fall can increase energy efficiency anywhere from 10% to 100%.
3. By prolonging the life of your Heating, Cooling, or Refrigeration system. Just like changing your oil prolongs the life of your engine, or rotating your tires prolongs their life, proper maintenance of your HVAC&R system will prolong it's life
