Heating PMA visit consists of applicable above listed and other heating specify items.
Your outdoor unit will be taken apart so that it can be thoroughly checked and cleaned during your PMA. Components of your indoor unit will also be checked and cleaned if applicable.
Even though your outdoor unit has a cage around it, leaves and other debris ends up on and around your coil which restricts air flow and makes your system work harder costing you more on your power bill.
All electrical wiring is checked and tightened when needed. Other common parts that indicate future failure like contactors and capacitors are checked. If these need replacing, you will be informed and given the option to replace (for an additional charge) now instead of when they fail during peak use costing you more later for a diagnostic call and the repair.
Pressure washing your outdoor unit can damage the fins on your outdoor coil which restricts air flow that reduces efficiency. The fins on the right are damaged and the ones on the left have been straightened.
Dirty coils also restrict air flow. The indoor (if easily accessible) and outdoor coils are saturated with coil cleaner which foams up and loosens the dirt.
Your system can breathe easier and work less now that it's clean which makes it more energy efficient. This saves you money while using it during the peak cooling season.
