In Daytona Beach’s unique conditions, the typical life span of a home’s HVAC system is 8-10 years. Past this, oxidization as well as weakening parts begin to noticeably affect the system’s efficiency. The biggest indicator of this is your home’s rising energy bill. When an aging system or its parts fault and is in need of repair, it happens when you least expect it to and repairs can be costly. These situations can be prevented by having your system properly inspected and maintained regularly.
With proper maintenance, we can help your HVAC system operate as efficiently and effectively as possible and with proper inspection, we’ll catch any weakening or damaged parts and bring it to the homeowner’s attention immediately in order to prevent more costly damage before it happens.
If you own an AC unit or heating unit that is under 10 years old, then it is also possible that the warranty may still be valid on your system. In order for all warranties to stay in effect, the system must be maintained and inspected at least once per year. Our inspection and maintenance visits will satisfy this requirement.
To assist our customers, we offer 3 year, 2 year, and 1 year preventative maintenance agreements in which the homeowner is entitled to 2 maintenance visits annually. Other benefits that are included in our agreements are discount prices on everything from parts and labor to new units, priority customer status when a service call is needed, and more.
Below is a list of what will be covered during our AC maintenance visit. If you have any questions or would like more information call our office at (386) 252-1247.
