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.
We have used Panther for all our heating and cooling needs for nearly 30 years - including installing and maintaining humidifiers and dehumidifiers. Technician Bobby Foard usually comes to our house and is always punctual, personable and very knowledgeable. He keeps us informed every step of the way and leaves us with a detailed description of work done. We have also been impressed with the quality of other contractors they work with when needed to complete a job - i.e. plumbers, electricians, mold remediation, etc. In short, I would highly recommend Panther!!
Panther installed my whole house system 3 years ago. I had annual service yesterday, and Brett did a thorough job and was very professional. During the service, it came to our attention the unit had pulled away from the house creating a gap. Panther immediately sent out their install team to correct the problem.
Edgar and Enrique serviced the call and did an excellent job, even better than I had hoped. They replaced the metalwork and neatly caulked with care and precision. Panther is the team you want when it comes to HVAC and their team members make it a pleasure.

There are so many heating and cooling services to choose from and I am SO GRATEFUL I chose this company. They are knowledgeable, professional, honest, and just overall good people serving their community in the best way. Our technician, Terry, went above and beyond calling for parts, getting us warranties, coordinating with the manager to ensure we were getting the BEST deal and service possible and communicated with us from beginning to end. We had major leaks in our system that needed repair & our refridgerant literally ran out a day before parts could be installed and our home immediately started to climb to over 83 degrees. They arranged for us to take our 1 and 2 year old babies and stay at a nice local hotel for the night! They have truly been a blessing and we will continue to use them for our heating and cooling needs for years to come! And congratulations Terry, you will be an AWESOME father!!
First time using Panther after our AC stopped working. Our tech Bryson was amazing. He came out immediately on a Sunday. Our issue was complicated, so he returned first thing Monday AM to contact our machine’s manufacturer to ensure the correct problem was dealt with and to see if our repair would be covered under warranty. Panther went above and beyond to drove out of town to collect the needed part, so the repair could be done same-day. We were so grateful for such fast service that we felt comfortable signing up for a service plan with Panther. Thanks for everything Panther and especially Bryson!
We’ve been customers of Panther for years and continue to give them high recommendations. The Technician arrived as scheduled, was very polite and professional, and did impeccable work on systems. These are good Rock Hill people (our kids went to school together) and are now in the second generation of their family providing excellent service. Many thanks to Panther!
We have used Panther Heating and Cooling many years. They replaced our upstairs and downstairs units in June 2022.
* Estimate was clear and easy to understand
* Scheduled installation quickly (the very next day!)
* Installers were extremely polite and very clean (it didn't even look like they had even been there)
*Service calls and repairs are scheduled quickly and they are always on-time or early
These guys provide the best service I’ve ever had from an HVAC company. Four years ago they installed my geothermal service at my house in amazing job their experts at it. Josh the owner stare in that direction and I’ve been so happy with the system and the service of his company!
Terry was my technician and he came out to my new home (1949 flip remodel) to fix what was done incorrectly during the previous homeowner flip/install. He insured my unit outside and inside was working at its best capacity/efficiency. He had to do quite a few fixes. Freon was added since values were not fully open. Installed a p-trap to prevent chiller/unit from backing and leaking and tighten up any duct leaks. He explained all items very clearly and i was very pleased with the outcome.
Im new to Rock Hill and like to use local. I would GrEATLY recommend Panther Heating and Cooling and technician Terry. Very Satisfied.
Job well done.
