Maintenance Programs

Let us handle the stress of maintaining your equipment for you.

With a Planned Service Agreement from Drabek & Hill, Inc., we will contact you to schedule your heating and cooling tune-ups, so you can worry about more important things in life.

Did you know that a build-up of just one-twentieth of an inch of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a 21% decrease in efficiency?  That translates into energy bills up to 20% higher than they should be.  If your heating and cooling bill is $150 a month, you could be paying about $30 a month more than you should!

7 Reasons a Planned Service Agreement is right for you:

  • Peace of Mind – With a Planned Service Agreement our professionally trained technicians will perform service maintenance and conduct a multi-point safety operational inspection on your heating, cooling and duct system twice a year.  This service will be done prior to peak heating and cooling seasons.  Any potential problems are sure to be spotted before they can cause trouble or interrupt your comfort.
  • Preferred Treatment – Regular maintenance reduces the chance of a breakdown.  Should you need service, however, P.S.A. customers will receive priority service.
  • Lower Utility Bills – With regularly scheduled maintenance, your unit is certain to operate more efficiently and with much less power consumption – as much as 15%!
  • Prolonged Equipment Life – Regular planned maintenance keeps your equipment running smoothly.  By avoiding the strain put on equipment from blocked coils and filters, you can expect a longer life from your system.
  • Transferable – Should you wish to sell your home, arrangements may be made to transfer the P.S.A. to the new owners, thus making your home more marketable, or you can transfer your P.S.A. to your new residence.
  • Lower Repair Costs – As a P.S.A. customer, you are entitled to a special discount on any needed repairs.
  • Warranties – Provides proof of proper maintenance to ensure that your manufacturer and home warranty repairs are honored.

You should expect your service technician to:

  • Do a complete system operation check in both cooling and heating modes (two different visits)
  • Check the defrost operation on the heat pump (if you have one) (winter)
  • Check all other major components and safety devices
  • Clean the outdoor air conditioner coils
  • Check the indoor blower housing and blower wheel
  • Most modern residential air conditioning and heating fan motors have permanently lubricated bearings so no additional lubrication is needed.

Your duct system should also be checked. Inefficient operation can be caused by return air leaks located in non-air conditioned spaces like attics or crawl areas. Hot or cold air is drawn in through the leak, which is then heated or cooled by your system. This decreases your system’s ability to heat or cool your home and also increases your energy bill.
