Fall is the time to start getting your HVAC system ready for winter.

We not only check to see if everything is working correctly, but we also inspect your system for safety, efficiency, and performance. Everything included is listed in our 23-Point Winter HVAC Inspection Checklist below.
Why You Need a Winter HVAC Inspection
Your HVAC system should be inspected bi-annually, and the winter HVAC inspection is a big one. Keeping your system operating effectively and efficiently helps to:
Keep Utility Bills Under Control
HVAC Systems that work efficiently use less energy, lowering utility and energy bills.
Prevent System Breakdowns & Costly Repairs
Regular air conditioning maintenance and inspections help you avoid costly AC system repairs. During the Winter HVAC Inspection, our professionals often locate minor issues and address them early on, saving you money on expensive repairs for major problems.
Improve Air Quality
As a part of our 23-Point Winter HVAC Inspection, our team cleans coils and filters to remove the dirt, dust, bacteria, and mold that can build up. Regular maintenance and cleaning keep allergens and dirt out of the air in your home.
Enhance Performance & Efficiency
When your parts and systems are operating effectively, and efficiently your family stays warm all winter. Our expert technicians inspect parts and replace parts during your Winter HVAC Inspection to ensure your system performs optimally.
When you regularly maintain your HVAC system, risks for electrical fires and carbon monoxide poisoning are lowered. During your Winter HVAC Inspection, our technician evaluates the vents and flues for venting any unhealthy air out of your home.
Extend the Life of Your HVAC System
Regular maintenance and inspections help to extend the life of your unit. While inspecting your system, our technician can discuss any needed repairs and get your authorization to complete the repairs.
Winter Heating System Inspection
Inspecting and servicing your heating system can help to identify carbon monoxide leaks. As part of our Winter HVAC Inspection, we examine and evaluate your heating system to ensure your thermostat is operating correctly, that all moving parts are lubricated, that your condensate drain is free from blockages, and that your condensate drain is free from block electrical connections are in good condition. We also inspect and clean your condensation pump, clean the coils, and replace air filters.
