Routine Preventive Maintenance
One of the best things Oklahoma homeowners can do to keep their air conditioners and heating systems healthy is to have a professional technician perform preventive maintenance on a regular basis.
At American Refrigeration & Heating, we make this process very simple and affordable. We can come out twice per year (once in late Spring, and once in late Fall) to inspect and repair your heating and cooling equipment. This ensures your system remains in top working condition, and does not slowly deteriorate over time.
Benefits of Preventive Maintenance
Save energy: The efficiency of your heating and cooling units can be reduced over time. When our technician inspects your air conditioner or heating system, we will ensure that everything is in top working condition. This will cut down on your energy consumption.
Avoid unnecessary repairs: Mechanical components deteriorate over time, and if your air conditioner or heating system is neglected, it will eventually develop serious problems. By having it maintained twice each year, we can detect problems before they start! This will reduce the chances of a failure that leaves your home or business with no heating and cooling.
Keep your home safe: If you have a gas furnace like many homeowners in West Tennessee, there is a chance that carbon monoxide can leak into your air. When performing preventive maintenance, a technician will assess the safety of your system to ensure there is not a crack in the heat exchanger or any other problem that can threaten the safety of your family.
Extend the life of your units: No one wants to replace a furnace or air conditioner any sooner then they have to! Preventive maintenance can extend the life of your heating and cooling systems by years!
