How Often Should I Have My HVAC System Serviced?

Regular service and maintenance are essential if you hope to keep your HVAC equipment functioning at its best and most efficiently. Ideally, your system should be serviced at least annually. Scheduling an annual maintenance tune-up can help you avoid expensive repairs by catching any issues before they develop into major problems.

During a service and maintenance tune-up, SMO Energy’s technicians provide outstanding client service. They take the time to address any concerns or questions you might have about your heating and cooling equipment. They follow a comprehensive checklist to thoroughly inspect, clean, tune-up and run your equipment.

Depending on your equipment type and the condition, the entire process takes approximately 1.5 hours. Annual maintenance on your heating equipment and cooling equipment will ensure your equipment operates at peak performance, prolong the equipment’s life and will ultimately save you money on operation costs.

HVAC Equipment Repairs

When it comes to selecting a repair company for your HVAC equipment needs, make sure your technicians are NATE-certified. All of SMO’s service technicians hold current NATE certifications and have extensive HVAC knowledge to repair your heating and cooling equipment efficiently.

Our technicians specialize in repairing all of the following, and more:

  • Heat pump repair. If your heat pump is acting funny and is under 10-years-old, repair might be the most appropriate choice for you. Signs that your heat pump might need repair include loud noises, ice build-up, higher-than-usual energy bills and poor temperature control at home.

  • Air conditioning system repair. An air conditioner that's frequently running or that is not properly cooling your home might be one that needs repair. The age of your A/C and its overall performance will influence whether repair or replacement is the best option.

  • Oil and gas-fired boiler repair. When your boiler starts making loud noises, leaking or heating your home unevenly, it is a good idea to have a certified technician take a look at it. Depending on the condition and age of the boiler, a repair can help restore it and allow it to operate as good-as-new again.

  • Oil and gas-fired furnace repair. One sign that your furnace might need repairing is if it cycles on and off frequently. Another sign that it needs repair is if it is using more fuel than usual, which increases your energy bills. Regular maintenance of your furnace can help you identify when it is due for repairs and can also help to keep the cost of repairs down. Oil, gas and electric water heater repair. There is nothing like a cold morning shower to make you realize that your water heater needs some TLC. If your water heater is on the young side, a repair might be a cost-effective option, rather than replacing it.

  • Tankless water heater repair. If it takes a long time to get hot water or if you are not getting any hot water at all, a certified technician from SMO Energy can examine your tankless water heater and perform the appropriate repairs.

  • Gas fireplace repair. A gas fireplace is usually much lower maintenance compared to a wood-burning fireplace. But there might be times when your fireplace is not performing as it should. Repairing a fireplace can allow it to burn brightly and efficiently, helping to improve your home's comfort.

If your heater decides to break down in the middle of the night or on the weekend, we will be there for you to fix it. Along with being available for our clients around-the-clock for emergencies, we also have client care representatives standing by to take your calls 24/7.

Certified Technicians

You only want the best of the best working on your home's heating and cooling equipment, and SMO Energy's team of technicians is among the best in the business. To become certified, our technicians complete nearly 3,000 hours worth of training. They then must take and pass the NATE exam.

Maintenance and Service

Just as your vehicle needs regular tune-ups and inspections to keep it functioning at its best, your HVAC system needs regular maintenance. SMO Energy's NATE-certified technicians provide annual tune-ups to help your HVAC equipment continue to work at its prime. With regular maintenance, your system will continue to operate efficiently, helping you to save money on your energy bills. Regular maintenance can also prolong the life of your system so that you need to replace it less often. Since regular tune-ups help to improve the functioning of your system, they can also help to improve the quality of the air inside your home. You and your family can breathe easier when your system's ducts are cleaned regularly.

Service Agreements

Although you realize regular maintenance is essential, it can be a bother to remember to schedule a tune-up. A free annual tune-up is included as part of a service agreement for your equipment. Another benefit of a service agreement is that it protects you should your equipment need any considerable repairs. The agreement also includes parts and labor coverage, as well as the tune-up. As an added benefit and protection, 24/7 emergency service is part of our service agreement.

Repair and Installation

Should you repair equipment or install new equipment? It is a big decision to make. In some cases, repairing is the better option. It often costs less than replacement and can be appropriate for relatively young equipment. Although installing new equipment or replacing outdated equipment with a newer model can cost more than repair upfront, in the long run, it might be more cost-effective. SMO Energy's NATE-certified technicians can work with you to help you weigh the pros and cons of repair versus replacement. We can schedule an in-home energy consultation, during which we will listen to your needs and concerns, examine your home and make recommendations to you.
