HVAC Maintenance

San Diego, CA, has some extreme weather, and you’ll need a heating and cooling system that’s effective and efficient. One of the best ways to keep your heating and cooling system working well is to schedule regular professional maintenance visits. Use these tips to plan the frequency and timing of your heating and cooling system tune-ups.

Schedule Springtime Air Conditioning Maintenance

Summers are long and hot in San Diego, so your air conditioning system will get a lot of use. We recommend a maintenance visit for your cooling system in the springtime. During this visit, our NATE-certified technicians measure the refrigerant level, clean the condensate drain and change the air filter.

Plan an Autumn Tune-Up for Your Heating System

Winter nights can get chilly in San Diego. You’ll need an effective heating system to keep your home warm. Plan an autumn tune-up of your heating system. Our technicians check the pilot or ignition, clean the burner, sensor and heat exchanger and verify the gas supply valve and electronic control settings.

Arrange Heat Pump Maintenance Twice Each Year

Heat pumps offer both heating and cooling functions. Because they’re in use almost all year long, they need two maintenance visits every year. We recommend scheduling one tune-up in the springtime and another in the autumn. Heat pump maintenance includes verification of the refrigerant level and cleaning the condensate line. We also clean the condenser and evaporator coils, fan blades, and housing. Our technicians also inspect the hoses, valves, and motor. We lubricate all the moving parts.
