AC Maintenance and Repair Services - Vent Masters

Cave Creek, AZ, can experience extreme weather. It’s important for your heating and cooling system to be ready for both intense heat and cold air. Regular maintenance performed by our certified technicians at Vent Masters will keep your heating and cooling system in excellent condition. Here’s what you need to know about scheduling HVAC maintenance.

Schedule a Spring Cooling System Tune-up

Schedule a springtime tune-up to get your cooling system ready for the long, hot summers in Cave Creek. We recommend a tune-up in late March or April. During this maintenance visit, our technicians will clean the condensate line, verify the refrigerant level, and clean all moving parts. We’ll also check the thermostat and replace the air filter.

Make an Autumn Heating System Maintenance Appointment

In the fall, schedule a heating system tune-up. October and November are good times to schedule this appointment. During a heating system maintenance visit, our NATE-certified technicians will inspect the gas supply and safety valves, heat exchanger, and burners. We’ll also clean the combustion chamber, replace the filter, and check the flue.

Arrange Two Tune-Up Visits for Your Heat Pump

Some homes in Cave Creek have heat pumps. A heat pump performs both heating and cooling functions. Because they transfer heat in and out of your house, heat pumps are used year-round. They need two maintenance visits every year. You should schedule one visit in the spring and the other in the autumn. We also recommend checking the heat pump’s air filter once each month. To remember, set a reminder on your phone or tablet. If the filter is dirty after one month of use, replace it.
