Air Conditioning Tune-Ups throughout Southeast Wisconsin
Did you know your AC system loses five percent of its energy efficiency every year it misses a tune-up? That means your unit is becoming less environmentally friendly and more expensive in terms of utility bills. This decline will continue at a steady rate until your AC system receives maintenance or it fails completely!
Scheduling regular preventative air conditioner maintenance can help prevent many of the most common cooling system breakdowns and malfunctions. Like any mechanical system, your home’s air conditioning system needs to be cleaned and inspected annually to ensure that it’s operating safely and efficiently. Our professional AC maintenance experts are highly trained and experienced in cleaning and making the correct adjustments to keep any type of home air conditioning system running at peak performance.

The Benefits of an HVAC Maintenance Agreement
A good HVAC Maintenance Agreement will help you reap the most benefits from maintaining your heating and cooling system. When scheduling your annual AC tune up, it’s recommended to enroll in an annual maintenance plan to reap the benefits of preferred pricing, priority scheduling, and importantly an annual maintenance visit that meets the AC manufacturers and extended warranty requirements.
Signing up for an HVAC maintenance agreement makes it easier to reap the most benefits from your AC tune-ups. Air conditioner maintenance offers tons of benefits, like:
1. Increased energy efficiency. Properly maintained HVAC systems operate 20 percent more efficiently.
2. Lower energy bills. AC Maintenance can save you up to 50 percent on energy costs.
3. Extended equipment life. Well maintained air conditioning equipment lasts 8-12 years longer than those that rely on reactive repairs.
4. Upholding warranties. Manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep your warranties active.
5. Indoor air quality. Clean equipment means healthier air for your family to breathe.
6. Fewer breakdowns. 90 percent of AC repairs are due to lack of maintenance. Dealing with an AC repair costs you time and money, which can be avoided with preventative maintenance.
Capital Heating & Cooling offers four types of Capital Rewards™ Maintenance Agreements each with different level of benefits that consider your AC equipment, preferences and DIY abilities. Regardless of which maintenance agreement you choose, your air conditioning equipment will be well taken care of year round by our professional HVAC technicians.

What Should I Expect from the Company Doing My AC System Maintenance?
ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America) has nationally recognized standards of what to expect from an HVAC company include the minimum level of acceptable inspection tasks for HVAC maintenance inspections. These standards were developed primarily because the varying types and intensity levels of “clean and checks,” “seasonal tune-ups,” and “maintenance services” from local HVAC contractors can be confusing and misleading to everyday homeowners.
ACCA and Energy Star tells homeowners that your HVAC contractor should include the following AC maintenance checklist, to keep your system running effectively:
1. Test starting capabilities
2. Monitor refrigerant pressure
3. Test safety controls
4. Tighten electrical connections
5. Lubricate all moving parts
6. Check batteries in thermostat
7. Adjust thermostat calibration
8. Clean condenser coil
9. Clean condensate drains
10. Measure temperature difference
11. Monitor AC cycles
12. Check safety and limit switches
13. Check circuit boards
14. Check capacitor output
15. Check voltage
16. Check amperage
17. Check drain pan safety switch
18. Inspect electrical connections
If your AC tune-up doesn’t include these things, at the very minimum, you’re probably not getting your money’s worth. Worse yet, your system may not be safe to operate and causing high energy bills. The very basic tune-up includes a full 18-point clean and check, including all the suggested points above, as recommended by ACCA and ENERGY STAR®.
