Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in Rock Hill, SC, requires general maintenance to keep your investment in working order. It’s really all about being prepared. Per Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintaining your home’s systems and appliances wards off emergency situations and costly repairs while extending your equipment’s life. Take the time and money to perform general maintenance on a regular basis. Many of the maintenance services require the knowledge, skills, and tools of a professional. During the maintenance or service call, our technician will make any necessary repairs and/or alert you of a possible situation. Call Panther Heating and Cooling to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:
We highly recommend an annual service tune-up and cleaning for your furnace. Typically the optimum time of year to perform the maintenance is the fall, before you fire up your furnace for the cold weather. Following your tune-up, our technician will instruct you on anything you could do yourself as maintenance between our service visits.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. The purpose of the service tune-up is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, so you have air conditioning whenever you need it. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit. One absolute action you can take is to change your filter with the correct replacement every three months, or as needed. This goes a long way in extending the life of your air conditioner, as well as keeping your air conditioner repairs to a minimum and your indoor air quality high.
Heat Pump Maintenance
For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and air conditioners. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.
Whole-House Humidifier Maintenance
For whole-house humidifiers, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed at the same time as your furnace tune-up and cleaning. Our professionals can perform this maintenance along with the furnace appointment. Typically there isn’t much in the way of maintenance; however, if needed our technician can change your humidifier pad and clean any mineral buildup you may have (in the case of hard water). Ask our technician to show you how to dissolve the buildup on your own every few months to keep your humidifier working at top efficiency.
Air-Filtration System Maintenance
For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something your can perform on your own. Maintenance on an air-filtration system usually just means changing or cleaning the filter every three to nine months. But you should check with the manufacturer’s specific recommendations. Changing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis will ensure the best filtration for your home as well as extend the life of the system. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at Panther Heating and Cooling.
Panther was able to schedule a service call the same afternoon I called. Bobby Foard and partner Williams arrived on time, quickly diagnosed the problem with the thermostat and replaced the faulty unit. Both technicians were professional and personable, giving helpful information for better AC performance. Mr. Foard offered a service maintenance plan by Panther to insure our AC units remain in top condition in the future. The overall service by Panther was excellent and affordable.
Thomas and Jack were on time, professional, courteous, knowledgeable and answered all of my questions without hesitation. They came out for winter maintenance on our recently purchased system from Panther. I would highly recommend Panther to anyone needing their services. Thank you guys.
