Maintaining Cooling Equipment

AC maintenance for your system is just as important as changing the oil in your car. Proper and routine maintenance plans ensure that a system is operating efficiently and can help avoid costly repairs. In addition, industry studies have shown that regular service plans increase the lifecycle of an air conditioner system up to 30 percent.

Our Energy Savings Agreement plan is one of the best ways to make certain that your system stays in top-notch condition and operates smoothly. Gentry’s tune-up specialists department is dedicated to providing the best preventative service in the industry. We offer one year, two year and three year plans with discounts so that customers can plan ahead and save money. A 15 percent discount on parts and labor and a five percent discount on new equipment are provided with the service plans. In addition, the plans offer 24/7 emergency repair after hours and on weekends with no overtime charges. 

During a scheduled visit with a service plan, our NATE-certified technicians come prepared with all of the diagnostic tools needed to tune-up your air conditioner system. The tasks include checking wiring connections, lubricating parts, testing the thermostat, checking and repairing leaks, cleaning the coil and much more. This is the ideal time for our skilled technicians to troubleshoot small problems before larger ones develop for cost-effective solutions for any air conditioner problem. 

When to Upgrade an Air Conditioner System

Even with the best maintenance plans, there are times when repairs will be needed like with a car or any other appliance. Replacing a fan motor, installing a new thermostat or fixing a leak is typically cost effective. If repairs are going to be over $1,000, it may be time to consider upgrading to a more energy efficient system and replacing the existing system. Our technicians will give all of the best options so that you can make an informed decision. 

Whether you are a general contractor or homeowner, each of our projects is led by a team of advisors that do a professional load calculation in accordance with the protocols outlined in the Air Conditioner Contractors of America (ACCA) manual. Each room and walls are measured to determine the proper size of the unit that the home requires. Undersized units can cause the system to run continually, and oversized units will frequently cycle on and off. Both situations cause a reduction in efficiency and adversely affect humidity levels. Even though your system is new, we always advise consumers to invest in a preventative maintenance plan for optimal performance.
