HVAC Maintenance in Mendenhall, Jackson, Madison MS and Surrounding Areas

Your cooling and heating system takes a beating throughout the year because it runs the most when the weather is extreme. Temperature and humidity cause extreme stress and wear that can damage vital components. HVAC maintenance is essential to maximize comfort, lower utility costs and extend the life of your equipment. Hux Air Conditioning offers a planned maintenance agreement (PMA) that includes 2 visits per year, once in the spring and fall.

Comprehensive HVAC Maintenance

Regular HVAC maintenance remains the best investment you can make to enhance efficiency, improve comfort and eliminate unexpected breakdowns during severe weather. Quality equipment manufacturers believe preventive maintenance is so important they’ve made it a contingency for continued warranty coverage. Our technicians visit your house twice a year to clean, test, inspect and optimize your HVAC equipment. They’ll look for small problems that can be easily corrected before they cause a major problem.

We do a safety inspection while we do tune-ups or a diagnostic. When we are servicing a unit, it is part of the technician’s job to not only make sure that the unit is running at its most efficient but also safely. The technician is to inform the customer with any safety hazards as part of the diagnostic or PMA plan.

Here is a list of what you can expect from your service technician during the spring tune-up.
