Routine Preventive Maintenance

One of the best things Oklahoma homeowners can do to keep their air conditioners and heating systems healthy is to have a professional technician perform preventive maintenance regularly.

At American Refrigeration and Heating, we make this process very simple and affordable. We can come out twice yearly (once in late Spring and once in late Fall) to inspect and repair your heating and cooling equipment. This ensures your system remains in top working condition and does not slowly deteriorate over time.

Benefits of Preventive Maintenance

Save energy: Over time, your HVAC system gradually loses efficiency. When our technician inspects your air conditioner or heating system, we will ensure that everything is in top working condition. This will cut down on your energy consumption.

Avoid unnecessary repairs: Mechanical components deteriorate over time, and if your air conditioner or heating system is neglected, it will eventually develop serious problems. Having it maintained twice yearly means we can detect problems before they start! This will reduce the chances of a failure that leaves your home or business without heating and cooling.

Keep your home safe: Carbon monoxide poisoning is a risk in many Oklahoma homes. When performing preventive maintenance, a technician will assess the safety of your system to ensure there is no crack in the heat exchanger or any other problem that can threaten your family’s safety.

Extend the life of your units: No one wants to replace a furnace or air conditioner any sooner than they have to! Preventive maintenance can extend the life of your heating and cooling systems by years!
