Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is a must when it comes to your HVAC system! By keeping your system well-maintained, you can extend its lifespan and ensure that it runs smoothly when you need it the most. A little preventative maintenance can go a long way, and that’s why Air Rite offers an extensive maintenance program to customers in Atascadero, CA, and surrounding areas.

What are the benefits of regular maintenance?

The main benefits of preventative maintenance include:

  • Prolonging the life of your HVAC system
  • Reducing the need for repairs
  • Improving energy efficiency
  • Enhancing indoor air quality
  • Ensuring optimal performance

By having a professional clean and inspect the unit on a regular basis, you can help keep it running at peak efficiency, which can save you money on your energy bills. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, this can lead to a savings of up to 30%.

If a component of your system is beginning to fail, it will likely show signs of wear and tear before it completely breaks down, so maintenance should be an important part of your schedule. 

Plus, maintenance can save you a lot of money in the long run, as well as the hassle of having to deal with broken HVAC equipment, including air conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps, air handlers, boilers, packaged rooftop units, exhaust fans, and more.

What’s included in a preventative maintenance program?

A preventative maintenance program is a service agreement between a homeowner and an HVAC contractor that includes regular inspections and tune-ups of the equipment. Whether commercial or residential, we at Air Rite service all makes and models. Our highly trained technicians will come to your property and perform a comprehensive inspection of your unit.

Some examples of what’s included in an inspection include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Filter changes
  • Coil cleaning
  • Lubrication of moving parts
  • Tightening of electrical connections
  • Inspecting the condensate drain
  • Checking and adjusting pressure switches
  • Inspecting the blower assembly
  • Measuring amperage and voltage on all motors
  • Checking the refrigerant charge

After the inspection is complete, our technicians will then provide you with a detailed report that outlines any areas of concern and makes recommendations for repairs or replacement parts, if necessary.

Why Choose Us for Your Preventative Maintenance Program?

Air Rite’s technicians conduct maintenance visits twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Our planned maintenance clients also receive a discounted rate for HVAC parts as well as faster response times in the event of an emergency.

As the caretaker for a senior gentleman in Atascadero, I was concerned for his health and safety during a recent cold snap. I called Air Rite, explained the situation and they made getting my patient’s needs taken care of a priority. The service technician was knowledgeable and professional, going above and beyond and taking the time to listen to my patient’s own diagnosis. The heating repair was completed within an hour and the price was right. I will recommend Air Rite Heating and Cooling to both my patients and my friends.

“Let me tell you why this company should have “10” stars. First, you need to know we had attempted to get our forced air heating fixed by another company from Templeton (posted a review on their site). After waiting several days for the other company to return after their initial visit (said they needed to order a part). After many cold days without even a call back we called “Air Rite” in Atascadero. We spoke with Rick (the owner of the company) and explained our dilemma and frustration with our attempt to get it fixed. He understood and said a ...

“We have used Air rite twice. Once to replace our heater and the most recent was to replace our A/C unit. We have been more than satisfied both times. They are fair, reasonably priced, efficient, and professional.”

“Great service at a great price. When my parents needed an entirely new heater system Air Rite took care of it. When our heater recently went out Air Rite took care of it. Arnie came out diagnosed the problem and had us back up and running in no time. Great doing business with a small family-owned business. Highly recommend!”

“Air Rite certainly did right by me! Our 20 year old HVAC system, which had been nursed along for the last few years, finally gave up the ghost. Arne came out and assessed the situation and recommended a reasonably priced replacement system. This morning he sent his team of Cameron, Daniel, David, and Keith, and they went to work. Before 3:00 p.m. on this wickedly hot day in the North County (105°+), they got our new furnace and air conditioning units installed, up, and running. Thank you, Air Rite!”

“We needed to have our AC unit serviced and called Air Rite. The woman who works in the office was attentive and kind. They were really busy because it has been so hot but she let us know the soonest they could send someone out. When the technician arrived he was kind and courteous. He went above and beyond to clean out the leaves that were in our unit and made it ready for summer. Thanks, Air Rite!”
