Your air conditioner is an expensive, complicated piece of equipment with many moveable parts. Just like your car needs regular maintenance to keep it performing at its best and avoid costly breakdowns; your air conditioner needs a yearly tune up. A tune up improves comfort, prevents breakdowns, extends equipment life and saves you money on your monthly power bill.Nothing is worse than an air conditioner break down during the hottest days of Summer. Make sure you are prepared for the heat with a tune up. Not all tune ups are the same. You can trust you are getting a complete inspection and a thorough tune up when you call MTB Heating and Air.

Checking and Inspecting condensate drain- a clogged drain can cause water damage.
Checking controls of the system- assures the system starts, operates and shuts off properly.
Cleaning evaporator coils- a dirty coil reduces system’s ability to cool, the system has to run longer increasing energy costs.

Cleaning and adjusting the blower components- airflow problems can reduce efficiency by 15%.
