System Maintenance Packages

Service Package #1:

30 minutes appointment

This is the most basic service we offer, it includes a filter change and a check of the operations of the the Heat pump/AC unit through a super heat and subcool check. This is done by the use of gauges and temperature sensors.

Service Package #2:

1 - 2 hours appointment

This service is for systems 2 or more years old or a job that we did not originally do.

  • Indoor coil will be cleaned with 1 can of evaporator coil cleaner and blow out the condensate drain with the use of a gallo gun.
  • It also includes a filter change and a pressure check of the system before and after the cleaning of the coil to see the result of better air flow.

Service Package #3:

2 - 3 hours appointment or 4 - 5 hoursappointment

This service is for systems 5 or more years old or excessively dirty systems.

  • Indoor and outdoor coils will be cleaned with 1 can of designated coil cleaner and blow out condensate drain with the use of a gallo gun.
  • If indoor coil is to dirty to be cleaned with just the use of chemicals I will pump down the systems charge into the condensing unit and cut the evaporator lines.
  • We remove the coil and pressure wash it clean and adjust any bent fins with a fin comb.
  • If the condensing unit is too dirty to be cleaned with just the use of chemicals I will remove the exterior panels and pressure wash the coil.
  • The system will then be braized back together with the addition of a liquid line dryer. The lines will then be vacuumed to under 500 microns to ensure no Non condensables are present in the system.
  • Additional refrigerant may be required on start up due to any residual refrigerant that was unable to be pumped into condensing unit.
  • System filter will be changed and operation checked through superheat and subcooling.
