Trane Douglasville Air Conditioning

System maintenance can save you money!

We understand that having maintenance done on your air conditioning and heating system is not quite at the top of your to-do list, but we think it should be!  In this economy, more and more people are making cutbacks and doing what they can do to ‘pinch a penny’, but we have to be careful about the things we do cut back.  Skipping air conditioning and heating system maintenance can actually cost you more money in the big scheme of things.  For the next couple of weeks, we will go over air conditioning and heating maintenance, when it is needed, and some of the major benefits that you will get out of having your system ‘tuned up’.

What does having your heating and air conditioning system ‘tuned up’ entail?

If you sign up with Anchor for a service plan, you will receive a visit to your home, ahead of peak season, twice a year at one reduced price.  The trained, professional technician that visits your home will go through a detailed checklist to be sure that your system is working at its best.
We have provided the checklist for each system so that you will know exactly what you will be getting with our service plan.
