The most important step in keeping your Magic-Pak® unit running properly is cleaning or changing the filter on a monthly basis. All Climate Mechanical can perform the maintenance for all of your Magic-Pak® units to avoid costly repairs or replacement that could have been avoided with proper service.
Have you done all you can to protect your family, employees or tenants? Carbon monoxide detectors are a great start, but they will only alert you when there is a problem – they will not prevent the problem from occurring or fix it once it happens. Proper maintenance and cleaning of your gas fueled appliances and equipment is crucial to the prevention of carbon monoxide exposure.
A combustion analysis is the best way to determine if your furnace is running properly. Having this analysis performed in conjunction with a furnace tune up may even qualify you for a rebate from your natural gas provider. CenterPoint Energy will pay a rebate every other year for a furnace tune-up.
