Your HVAC tune‑up in five easy steps
Meet your technician
The day before your tune-up technician is scheduled to arrive, you'll receive an email with his or her photo, bio, relevant trade licenses and some fun background information. We do this because we want you to feel comfortable about the person who'll be arriving at your ? home.
Relax while we check & clean your system
Our technicians will arrive at your front door ready to inspect and clean your HVAC system. While at work, the tech will wear protective shoe covers in your home at all times and lay down spotless drop covers to protect the workspace and keep your home clean.
Get a written report on your system
After the tune-up, our technicians will provide you with a written report detailing any additional work your AC or heating system may need now to prevent repairs later. After explaining any immediate repair needs, you can choose what work you'd like to prioritize. We'll either complete the work in the same visit or schedule another time/day to return and get the job done.
Let us know how we did
Whether the job was a huge success or there was something we could've done better, we want to know about it. Our team will be in touch with you to see how every aspect of the tune-up went. If you're not satisfied for any reason, we'll make it right.
