Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases. Annual preventative maintenance is required for manufacturer warranties and City Home Comfort has factory certified procedures. This is an affordable yearly service that has many benefits for your cooling system and electricity bill. 

  • Save Money and Energy:
    A clean cooling system operates more efficiently and uses far less energy than one that has not been properly maintained.
  • Increase Comfort:
    Dirt buildup within the fins of your outdoor condenser can obstruct the airflow required to operate efficiently. This will decrease your comfort as you wait forever for your system to meet the temperature you need. Our thorough cleaning will ensure there is no dirt restricting airflow.
  • Prevent Breakdowns:
    Keep your air-conditioner maintained and you’ll not only save money on energy, but you’ll also extend its lifespan, saving money on costly early replacement.
  • ***No Breakdown Guarantee***
    When you have your Central Air Conditioner maintained by a Shift Air Mechanical professional, your cooling system is covered by our No Breakdown Guarantee. Should the system break down after you have a cleaning, we will return free of charge during that current season!*
  • Increase Lifespan:
    The better you care for your AC, the longer it will last! Shift Air Mechanical’s certified maintenance technicians will clean, oil, and inspect your system to prevent the need for premature replacement.
