Replace AC or Fix

The A/C guy probably isn’t the first person you want on your speed dial. But a friendly, seasonal preventive maintenance visit can extend the life of your system and save you on unnecessary repairs down the line.

So What is Preventive Maintenance?

Just like you wash and wax your car to preserve your paint job, and change the oil to keep the engine running smoothly, you should schedule preventive maintenance checks to keep your heating and cooling equipment running like new. It’s not only good for your system, it’s good for you, too, because you’ll save energy dollars and enjoy enhanced home comfort!

What does the technician actually do during a preventive maintenance visit? Well, as you can imagine, there’s a lot going on “under the hood” of your heating and cooling system. And while much of it is too technical and boring to cover in great detail, each part and process has to be just right for your system to run efficiently. Some of the items your technician will check include:

  • Refrigerant charge
  • Fan and compressor
  • Condenser coil
  • Capacitors
  • Contractor points
  • Thermostat and mounting
  • Blower
  • Circuit components
  • Temperature switch
  • Float switch and its operation

If anything on the checklist isn’t functioning properly, or if your tech spots a problem on the horizon, you’ll learn about it during this preventive maintenance visit. That way, these problems can be addressed long before they compromise your comfort and safety, and before they cause expensive damage to your system.

In addition to this system checkup, your technician will perform a few routine maintenance tasks to keep your system efficient until the next visit. These include:

  • Brushing out the electrical cabinet
  • Changing the air filter
  • Lubricating all moving parts
  • Flushing and vacuuming the drain line and pan to evaluate drainage
  • Cleaning the exterior of the equipment

Should You Have a Preventive Maintenance Agreement?

If you’re like most people, you only think about your heating and cooling system once it breaks down. No one means to neglect their air conditioner, but these things are easily forgotten as you enjoy the beautiful Orlando weather.  With an annual preventive maintenance agreement, we keep track of when your system is due for its checkup so you don’t have to, and we’ll give you a call when it’s time to schedule your maintenance visits.

Our maintenance agreement comes with a host of additional benefits, including:

  • Two maintenance checks annually
  • Reduced diagnostic costs on service calls
  • 15 percent discount on parts
  • $150 off replacing your system

It’s nice to have peace of mind all year, knowing that you’ll receive a discount should anything need repaired or replaced during your annual maintenance plan.

So if you need to schedule a preventive maintenance visit, or if you have any other questions related to heating and cooling, please give us a call! Scott’s Heating & Air Conditioning proudly serves Orlando and the entire central Florida area, and we’d love to hear from you!

  • review rating 5  We had a great experience With this company, starting off with our sales person Daniel, extending to the entire installation crew. I’m sorry that I don’t remember all the names of the technicians who installed our units, but each and every one of them was very courteous, professional, and informative. They did not leave the house until the job is done right, and I did take a long time because we do have an older house. They started the job at about 8:30 in the morning and finished at 10 PM. They cleaned up everything and made sure that there was a full explanation as to how to use the thermostat units and the app so that we could control all of the AC units from our cell phones. They also made sure to follow up after the installation to make sure that we were satisfied with the job. I would certainly recommend Scott’s for AC installation.

  • review rating 5  CLIFF WAS AWESOME!!! After our AC unit wasnt cooling like it used CLIFF came to my home and did a phenomenal job. He was very professional and knowledgable. I work in the service field as well and noticed how clean and organized he kept his tools and material/parts he was removing and replacing. Parts were cleaned to the best of his ability due to it being a 21 year old unit. He did a fantastic job. Would definitely recommend SCOTTS to my neighborhood and google members. Now my house cools off in no time. Thanks again CLIFF and of course the SCOTTS TEAM.
