What is an HVAC Tune-Up?
Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Scheduled HVAC Maintenance

The right service agreements include HVAC tune-ups and perks to keep your system working optimally.

We've all heard mixed reviews about HVAC service agreements. Are they necessary? Are they a scam? And what is an HVAC tune-up anyway? It shouldn't be a big mystery. Here's the lowdown on service agreements and HVAC tune-ups:

What is a Service Agreement?

A service agreement is designed to help keep your HVAC system running in tip-top shape with regular tune-ups, inspections, and repairs, if needed. They help you get the most out of your heating and cooling system by making sure your system is running as it should and maintaining energy efficiency. Technicians also check for any issues so they are caught early enough to be easily repaired instead of turning into expensive emergency repairs.

What is an HVAC Tune-Up?

A tune-up will consist of a number of inspections, adjustments, and calibrations. For your heating and cooling system this will generally include:

  • Inspecting the thermostat and recalibrating, if necessary
  • Changing or installing new air filters
  • Checking electrical connections and repairing or replacing, if necessary
  • Cleaning and lubricating moving parts
  • Inspecting and cleaning condenser coil
  • Checking air flow
  • Inspecting and balancing the fan
  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Checking burner operation

Why Do I Need Both?

The primary purpose of a service agreement is to ensure regular tune-ups. With an agreement you can rest easy knowing your HVAC maintenance will happen regularly, often before your system has the chance to have any issues. The service plan is a way to work with your heating and cooling contractor to keep your system working as it should, ensure energy efficiency, reduce your utility bills, and reduce the chances of unexpected and costly repairs.

Don't let your HVAC system get out of whack and start costing you more money than necessary. Get the right service agreement in place with the trusted professionals at All City Heat and Air by contacting us or calling 704-545-2000 to schedule an appointment.

All City Heat and Air came out and installed a new system for me 2 years ago. We have had maintenance contracts on the system since then. Their professionalism is what stands out to me about them. It's under a service contract so it's covered by the contract. They come out every 6 months and the price covers the life of the contract.


I would recommend family and friends to very definitely consider them, and I will use them again. They are certainly very responsive, and they have been very willing to work with me. I live in Florida, but the house is in Charlotte so they have worked through some scheduling issues and some other issues with me that have been mutually satisfactory.
