HVAC equipment manufacturers build products that will operate dependably through many winter and summer seasons. However, heating and cooling units incorporate a wide array of moving parts and high-tech components that are repeatedly subjected to excessive stress and wear, especially in areas with severe seasonal weather. Regardless of how old your air conditioning and furnace system may be, routine HVAC maintenance will help improve performance and reduce the chance of an unanticipated breakdown.

Seasonal and Annual Maintenance Plans

At Amber Heating & Air Conditioning, we have developed a full complement of seasonal maintenance plans that will save you money and extend the life of your equipment.

There are many benefits associated with routine maintenance services when performed by a qualified HVAC professional contractor.

Lower Repair Costs: A preseason clean and check will uncover concealed problems before they can affect the performance of your system.

Superior Comfort: Undiagnosed performance problems can reduce the level of comfort in your home or office. NATE certified technicians have experience repairing every major brand of equipment, and they will optimize your system so that the temperature in each room remains even and comfortable.

Longer Equipment Life:
Properly maintained heating and air conditioning systems provide the same level of comfort while accumulating fewer run-time hours. Neglected HVAC equipment must produce longer cycles in order to generate the same capacity as an optimized unit. Planned maintenance reduces unnecessary wear on moving parts, which can substantially improve the service life of your system.

Reduced Utility Costs: During each preseason clean and check, your furnace and air conditioner are restored to the original manufacturer’s specifications. Better performance will maximize efficiency, which can save on monthly utility costs. Our technicians will also document other energy efficiency deficits.
