Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance = $avings!

Take care of your HVAC system, and it will take care of you.

Preventive maintenance agreements (PMAs) are an Annual agreement between you and Action Air & Plumbing for scheduled inspections and maintenance of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

For only $159 for the 1st system and $79 for each additional system, you can have peace of mind that your system will be running reliably and efficiently when you need it.

Plus, Maintenance Agreement holders also receive 15% off any repairs required during your maintenance agreement.

PMAs are generally scheduled for the spring and fall to maintain peak efficiency, help keep utility bills lower, extend the life of your HVAC system, and avert failures. Maintenance agreements offered by Action Air cover an inspection of the entire HVAC system and routine maintenance, filter changes if homeowner has filters already provided.

What you should expect your Action Air service technician to do during a PMA visit?

  • Check system functions, safety controls, and adjust the operating sequence where appropriate.

  • Inspect electrical components and connections and repair/replace or tighten as required.

  • Ensure proper airflow and change dirty air filters (if homeowner provides)

  • Inspect pumps, lubricate and check flow rates where appropriate.

  • Check and lubricate motors as required.

  • Examine belts, adjust and align as required.

  • Inspect, clean and balance blowers as required.

Spring Visit (preparation for summer season)

  • Check inside coil, condensate pans, condensate traps, and condensate lines to prevent obstructions.

  • Check outside coil and straighten fins for efficient operation.

  • Check refrigerant levels and if low, find the leak and fix it. (According to many equipment manufacturers, a 10% refrigerant loss will result in a 20% decrease in system efficiency!)

Fall Visit (preparation for winter season)

  • Check the burner assembly.

  • Check for soot from fireside of burner.

  • Ccheck operation of humidifier.

  • Inspect the heat exchanger for cracks.

  • Adjust air-to-fuel ratio of burner and perform combustion analysis

Note: For heat pump applications, winter season inspections repeat a number of the summer procedures plus several additional checks. Maintaining semi-annual PMAs for heat pumps is also important.
