Lewisville, TX, February 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Lower energy bills. Fewer repairs. Better warranty coverage. Longer-lasting equipment.
All of the above are virtually guaranteed when customers schedule bi-annual preventive maintenance for their HVAC units. And yet, most people fail to take these simple, common-sense steps to preserve some of the most expensive equipment in their homes. Commercial building landlords are just as guilty.
“We would much rather be called to our customers’ homes for routine maintenance than for emergency repairs,” said Mike Douglas, CEO of Advent Air Conditioning. “That’s why we highly recommend service agreements, which typically save our customers thousands of dollars -- and countless headaches -- over the lives of their air conditioning units.”
With proper up-keep, lifetime expectancy for quality HVAC systems -- like those made by Trane and Carrier – could be extended by up to 5-7 years. Regularly scheduled preventive and predictive maintenance not only helps avoid premature repair and replacement bills, but ensures that the manufacturer’s warranty coverage remains in effect for its full term.
Advent Air’s certified technicians perform several important tasks during scheduled maintenance calls. For outdoor units, they inspect refrigerant levels; clean dirt, leaves and debris from inside the cabinet; inspect and clean (if needed) the coil and cabinet; inspect and lubricate (if needed) the fan motor and fan blades; inspect the control box and all electrical parts; and inspect the compressor and tubing, among other tasks.
Indoor unit maintenance includes inspecting and cleaning (as needed) the blower assembly, motor, fan belt, evaporator coil, burner assembly, ignition system, safety controls heat exchanger, flue system, control box and ductwork. Technicians check for gas leaks in gas furnaces and recommend replacement of any parts that are corroded and inoperable or pose a safety threat.
In addition, the system is monitored while in operation for abnormal noises and odors; proper pressures, ventilation, airflow and temperature changes; and correct line and load volts/amps.
“We leave no stone unturned when it comes to maintaining our customers’ equipment,” said Douglas. “We take seriously our commitment to providing 100% customer satisfaction, and a big part of that is making certain their HVAC units work efficiently and cost-effectively for at least as long as their projected service lives.”
