Routine Maintenance

Palos Hills and the Surrounding Areas

Routine maintenance is essential to keep your  HVAC systems working efficiently, preventing costly repairs, and maximizing the life of your equipment. If you are new to homeownership and would like to be proactive when it comes to your heating and cooling equipment give us a call at (773) 706-9262 and schedule your preventative maintenance appointment today! We have 3 plans to choose from that best fit your needs. 

Some may assume that changing an air filter is sufficient to keep a furnace working properly and preventing breakdowns but the truth is, there is more to it than a simple filter change.

If you have not scheduled a preventative maintenance appointment in the past you may not know what the service consists of. Below, we will get more into depth on what a customer can expect from maintenance service to keep their system operating efficiently year-round. 


We take pride in our work so we offer:

  • 10-year manufacturer warranty on our equipment
  • 1-year labor warranty on new installations
  • 30-day labor warranty on all repairs
