Maintenance

Keep your system running right!

At Arctic Air, we’ve found that regular preventative maintenance is one of the best investments that you can make in regards to your heating and cooling system. We know that your HVAC system costs a lot, and we want to help you get the most out of it.

Our annual maintenance plan includes a spring and fall visit to your home. We typically perform spring tuneups between February – May, and fall tune ups between September-December.

To see exactly what we do on each visit, check out the lists below.

Not only is regular maintenance required for most manufacturer’s warranties, but it also provides a number of additional benefits to you.

The biggest 4 are:
  • Improve the heating and cooling performance of your system
  • Reduce your monthly operation costs
  • Prevent many avoidable repairs (and reduce the cost of other repairs)
  • Increase the life of your HVAC system
