5 Quick Steps to your HVAC tune‑up
Schedule your tune-up appointment
Get to know your technician
The day before your tune-up technician arrives, you'll receive an email with your technician's photo, bio, relevant trade licenses, and background information. We always send a little information about our technicians before their service, so our customers feel comfortable with who will be working in their homes.
We check & clean your HVAC systems
Our technicians always arrive on time, ready to inspect and clean your HVAC system. Our technicians will always wear protective shoe covers in your home and lay down spotless drop covers to protect the workspace and keep your Frederick home clean.
Get a written report on your system
After the tune-up, our technicians will provide you with a written report documenting any additional work your AC or heating system may need 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.
Give us your feedback
If there is anything we could have done better during your HVAC maintenance appointment, 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, we'll make it right.
