One on the Heat Cycle and the other on the Cooling Cycle. This ensures that your system is always up to the job at hand when it is most needed.During your scheduled maintenance, the service technician has the opportunity to find any small problem that may have occured with your sytem and to fix it before it becomes a large and expensive repair. During the heat cycle, your service technician will be checking for any carbon monoxide leaks. This is an especially important function as carbon monoxideexposure is very dangerous. Below are some other tasks a technician will perform during routine maintenance.
