DO YOU HAVE AN HVAC MAINTENANCE WARRANTY?

 

Keeping an HVAC maintenance warranty contract in place can save you hundreds to maybe thousands in parts and labor fees.

Having an HVAC maintenace warranty keeps your system running effeciently when needed.

Aorta provides a Spring tune-up and a Fall tune-up with every Maintenance Warranty.

Maintenance could literally be the difference in a machine that last’s 8 years and a machine that lasts 20 years

Nobody would ever dream of letting their car go 100,000 miles without so much as a tune up or an oil change. But that’s exactly what an air conditioner does in a Houston summer; it goes 100,000 miles or at least equivalent in run time. These machines are designed at 105 degrees but, we all know it can get as hot as 100 degrees in Houston Tx. Air Conditioners do not do well at those temperatures and that is why you need to some routine maintenance to ensure your air conditioner continues to blow cold.

How often should I have my heating or air conditioner looked at?

The best thing to do is give your air conditioner a good cleaning and a good once over every year about a month before summer. Also, give your furnace the old eagle eye once a year right before winter. There are times when you will look at your furnace and say oh, there was nothing wrong but, what about that one time when you catch a small problem before it became a big problem. That one time will save you some head ache and some money. The furnace absolutely needs to be checked for mechanical function, safety and rust every year.

Why do I need heating and ac checkups?

Here’s The 6 Big Reasons Why:

1. Carbon Monoxide

Every time your home furnace turns on, it generates carbon monoxide. That C02 is supposed to be inside a sealed metal chamber and vented out the flue pipe exhaust. Sometimes the heat exchanger can crack or the flue can be blocked or not pitched right. Either way the cause can be unwanted carbon monoxide finding it’s way into the homes livable or breathable space. Safety is the number one priority, That is why when we perform a winter time heating system check up. We inspect the flue and heat exchanger first to be sure your family is safe and can rest assured and worry free.

2. Compressors

A new compressor will turn on and pull a normal amp draw like 8-20 amps but a compressor that is starting to seize up inside will show it by pulling more power to get started. Example: A failing compressor might pull 30+ or even 60+ amps on start or for the first ½ a second then drop down to pulling constant 8-20 amps depending on size. This symptom is a preview to doom, but we can slow down the degrade by installing a start capacitor. A start capacitor will help the compressor get started so it doesn’t have to pull all that power to get started.

3. Insulating and sealing

During maintenance or whatever you call it. You should always look for broken seals anywhere around your return air or supply air ductwork connections. Leaky duct work can more than double the hvac portion of the energy bill and bring in a whole lot of unwanted dust debris and allergens. It’s very easy to simply crawl through the attic and inspect for leaks.

4. Burning Wires

During a central air conditioning checkup, we are looking for wires that may be showing signs of fatigue or burning. Catching them now and repairing or replacing them before they burn completely off can save you a compressor or a motor.

5. Dirty or Rusted Coils

You always need to inspect both the condenser coil and the evaporator coil to verify that they are not rusted or clogged with dirt. If a coil is rusty we know it could rust a hole and all the Freon leaks out or through the bottom and water leaks out all through the attic. With the potential for this type of damage we always inspect both coils before giving a system the all clear.

6. Drain Pans and Lines

Air Conditioning produces water. Clearing of the drain lines is very important as they do exactly what they sound like, they drain water outside. If these clog up, the water could back up and overflow, destroying your ceiling. That’s why it’s important to blow both drain lines out with a high pressure inert gas like nitrogen. It’s also important to inspect the drain pan for rust as you know what happens when the bottom of the unit rust’s a hole in itself, “can you say water leak”.

HVAC Maintenance Plans

Studies show that properly maintained heating and cooling systems last years longer than neglected equipment. At Air Chek, we offer Preferred Maintenance Agreements that maintain warranty compliance and preserve the safety and performance of your air conditioner/furnace, heat pump, or package unit system. We will schedule a spring and fall checkup for cooling and heating maintenance. This is your best insurance from having a breakdown during extreme weather.
