You have a few options when it comes to your preventative maintenance plan. Your filters need to be changed or cleaned every 90 days, which one of our technicians are happy to assist you with. for overall maintenance, some people choose to have their units maintained annually, and some insist on monthly inspections. We recommend that you have your unit maintained twice per year, once in the spring and once in the fall. 

Your Preventative Maintenance Plan

Here are a few things you need to know to increase the longevity of your unit. A high efficiency air filter is essential for the well-being of your system. Proper filtration protects the components of your unit, and the filter should be changed at least every 90 days. Seasonally, your refrigerant lines need to be inspected, and your humidifier filter should be replaced each fall.

Annually, your carbon dioxide detector batteries need replacement, and a technician will double check that your unit is still on level ground. Sometimes the soil can shift during the year, and imbalance your unit. Imbalances can cause damage to your unit, so this is an important part of maintenance. Additionally, your inspector will check the condensate drain at least once per year to clear it of any mold or algae that may have accumulated.
