Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance

Remember with proper maintenance your air Conditioning and heating system should last 10-15 years.
Make sure your outside condenser is free and clear of all brush and debris.
Make sure the condensate lines are draining and have no debris around them.
Change or clean your air filters at least once a month, especially in the summer months.

It is important to have your air conditioning and heating system inspected and serviced at least once a year. Regular maintenance insures that your system is running as efficiently as possible and helps keep your utility bills as low as possible. Regular maintenance also will help extend the life of your AC/Heating system and help minimize costly repairs.

If your heating and cooling system is over 10 years old, you could be paying over 30% more in utility costs than need be. Definitive Air can help reduce those utility bills and make your home more comfortable and give you confidence of years of worry free operation with our 10 year compressor and 10 year parts on any new Rheem equipment.

Depending on the age of your home, it is not necessarily cost effective to install a high efficient unit in your home because the return on the extra cots will not offset the utility savings. This is a big selling point with contractors but may not be beneficial to you. Sometimes a 13 seer unit may be sufficient for your home.
