Disassemble and Clean – The Furnace Ballet:

Imagine a delicate ballet of wire brushes gracefully disassembling and cleaning furnace burner assemblies. This meticulous act ensures that the heart of the HVAC system beats with efficiency, eliminating any dust or debris that might hinder its performance.

Enter the air filters – the unsung heroes of indoor air quality. We change them like the maestro changes the score, opting for MERV 7 or greater to keep the air crisp and clean. Each filter is marked with care, a signature that promises freshness.

Make-Up Air Makeover – Filters and Replacements:

The outside make-up air and economizer filters receive a makeover. We clean them with finesse, replacing any damaged ones at an additional cost. It’s a glamour session that ensures the HVAC system breathes freely.

The Mechanical Waltz – Sheaves, Pulleys, Bearings, Oh My!:

Our technicians engage in a mechanical waltz, inspecting and adjusting sheaves, pulleys, bearings, fan blades, and blower wheels. They dance to the design RPM, a rhythm that guarantees the performance is in sync.

Belt Symphony – Installing New “Cogged” V-Belts:

The installation of new “Cogged” V-belts is like tuning instruments before a grand performance. Each unit gets its own set, and a spare belt is provided – a safety net ensuring the show goes on uninterrupted.

Combustion Choreography – Checking Main Burner:

A visual check of the main burner follows – a combustion choreography ensuring that the flames dance in perfect harmony. It’s a spectacle of precision and safety.
