An annual inspection allows a technician to identify dirty coils and burned out contactors before they cause long term damage to your system.
Many dealers provide priority service for their customers who have an annual maintenance or service agreement. Bi-annual preventative maintenance will ensure that your system runs as efficiently as possible. Your local dealer will perform the following tasks, depending on the unit:
