To save on utility bills and service calls, we urge you to take a preventive approach to heating and cooling by signing up for our Comfort Assurance Plan (CAP). All of your heating and cooling systems should be included in a regular inspection and maintenance program.
Why should you sign up for CAP?
Properly maintained equipment:
functions more efficiently
saves you money!
What does our CAP plan include?
In the Northern VA area, temperatures can rise to 100 degrees in the summer and drop to the teens in the winter. Most equipment failures occur during these periods. Move yourself to the front of the line with a Maintenance Agreement.
Savings on Repairs
Every once in awhile, systems do break down and repairs are needed. Maintenance Agreement customers save up to 20% on repairs and parts.
Regularly Scheduled Maintenance
Getting your HVAC system checked twice annually is just as important as changing the oil in your car every 3,000 miles!
What to expect during a maintenance visit:
Check system functions, safety controls, and adjust the operating sequence where appropriate.
Inspect electrical components and connections and repair/replace or tighten as required.
Ensure proper airflow and change dirty air filters.
Inspect pumps, lubricate and check flow rates where appropriate.
Clean and lubricate motors as required.
Examine belts, adjust and align as required.
Inspect, clean and balance blowers as required.
Spring Visit (preparation for summer season)
Clean inside coil, condensate pans, condensate traps, and condensate lines to prevent obstructions.
Clean outside coil and straighten fins for efficient operation.
Check refrigerant levels and if low, find the leak and fix it. (According to many equipment manufacturers, a 10% refrigerant loss will result in a 20% decrease in system efficiency!)
Fall Visit (preparation for winter season)
Clean the burner assembly.
Remove soot from fireside of burner.
Clean and check operation of humidifier.
Inspect the heat exchanger for cracks.
Adjust air-to-fuel ratio of burner and perform combustion analysis.
