What you should expect your service technician to do during a service call.

A lot of people ask us about the procedures that our technicians actually follow when they go out on annual tune-up and cleaning of furnaces and central air conditioners. The following is actually a checklist of (in broad terms) what our techs do when they come to your home:

  • Clean dirt, leaves and debris from inside cabinet.
  • Inspect base pan for restricted drain openings – remove obstructions as necessary.
  • Inspect coil and cabinet – clean as needed.
  • Inspect fan motor and fan blades for wear and damage – on older models lubricate as needed
  • inspect control box, associated controls / accessories, wiring and connections. Controls may include contactors, relays, circuit boards, capacitors, sump heat and other accessories. All control box and electrical parts should be checked for wear or damage.
  • Inspect compressor and associated tubing for damage

Indoor Units

  • Inspect and clean blower assembly (includes blower housing, blower wheel and motor).
  • On older models, lubricate motor and inspect and replace fan belt if neede.
  • Check combustion blower housing for lint and debris and clean as necessary.

  • Inspect for gas leaks in furnace.
  • Inspect burner assembly – clean and adjust as needed.

Our Mitsubishi Electric Ductless air conditioning system from Cozy Comfort Plus is just about inaudible and have made our very humid days completely comfortable inside the house. We purchased the system two summers ago and have not required any service as of yet. We are very pleased!
