Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in Charlotte, NC, requires general maintenance to keep your investment in working order. It’s really all about being prepared. Per Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintaining your home’s systems and appliances wards off emergency situations and costly repairs while extending your equipment’s life. Take the time and money to perform general maintenance on a regular basis. Many of the maintenance services require the knowledge, skills, and tools of a professional. During the maintenance or service call, our technician will make any necessary repairs and/or alert you of a possible situation. Call All City Heat and Air to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:
For furnaces, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall. The purpose is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, i.e., to keep you having heat when you need it. Our technician will check and clean (depending on whether you have a furnace or boiler) all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, ignitor, ducts, pipes, burners, valves, motors, thermostat(s), and smoke/carbon-monoxide detectors, and instruct you on anything you could do between our service visits. As a rule of thumb, furnace filters need to be changed every three months or as needed, which is something you can do yourself with the correct filters.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. Our professional technician will check and clean the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), as well as lubricate all working parts. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit, as well as to keep it covered with an air conditioner cover or tarp in the winter.
Heat Pump Maintenance
For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and boilers. Our professional technician will check and clean ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, ducts, refrigerant, electric terminals, connections, motors, and belts, as well as lubricate all working parts. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.
Whole-House Humidifier Maintenance
For whole-house humidifiers, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed at the same time as your furnace tune-up and cleaning. Our professionals include this maintenance along with the furnace appointment. Typically there isn’t much in the way of maintenance; however, our technician will change your humidifier pad and clean any mineral buildup you may have (in the case of hard water). Ask our technician to show you how to dissolve the buildup on your own every few months to keep your humidifier working at top efficiency.
Air-Filtration System Maintenance
For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something your can perform on your own. Maintenance on an air-filtration system usually just means changing or cleaning the filter every three to nine months. But you should check with the manufacturer’s specific recommendations. Changing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis will ensure the best filtration for your home as well as extend the life of the system. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at All City Heat and Air.

“Tim and Sean did a great job servicing my two units and explaining any concerns they found.”

“First time use of All City. Our original installer was no longer maintaining our two Bryant units he installed. I went on Bryant's website and found All City as an authorized Bryant dealer. It had been almost 3 years since we last had a maintenance check. Tim and Sean came out and were very professional. They wore masks and put protective booties on their shoes before entering the house. They answered all of my questions and did a thorough maintenance check of our heating system. In our bottom floor unit, Tim found that the condensate pump had failed. We had that replaced and while they were here, decided to add some safety items that had not been installed in the original installation 13 years ago. I was so satisfied with their work, that I decided to signup for their yearly maintenance plan. In the spring, as part of this plan, they will come out and inspect our cooling system. Thank you All City!”

“January 2021 had a whole new unit installed. The guys that showed up were great in and out in 1 day. I had heat immediately and nice cold air all summer. I signed up for the annual maintenance plan to keep the warranty in good standing. Great price for the piece of mind. Had a technician come out for the 1st real check-up today and was extremely professional as all the staff has been. Highly recommend this company and staff.”
