HVAC Tune-Ups

As the seasons change, it's important to ensure your heating and cooling systems are working properly. We recommend getting a pre-season tune-up twice a year — once in spring to prepare your A/C system for summer, and again in fall to make sure your heating system is ready for winter. Keeping your HVAC system in top condition can help prevent breakdowns and possibly prolong its life. Tune-ups are available for just $75 per unit with our ShieldSilver, ShieldGold plans. One free tune-up per contract term is included in the ShieldPlatinum plan.

HVAC Tune-up services are provided by American Home Shield ProConnect.
