Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in the San Antonio area, 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 KCA SERVICES to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:
We highly recommend an annual service inspection 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. The purpose of the service inspection is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, so you have heat whenever you need it. Our professional technician will inspect the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant (if a heat pump), drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Following your inspection, our technician will instruct you on anything you could do yourself as maintenance between our service visits. One absolute action you can take is to change your furnace filter with the correct replacement every three months, or as needed. This goes a long way in extending the life of your furnace, as well as keeping your furnace repairs to a minimum and your indoor air quality high.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For air conditioners, at least annual service inspection and cleaning are recommended. Our professional technician will inspect the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drains, electrical connections, fuses, and thermostat(s). Some 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.
Heat Pump Maintenance
For heat pumps, at least annual service inspection is recommended. Our professional technician will inspect ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, refrigerant, electrical terminals, connections, motors, and belts. Be sure to change or clean the filter as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.
Air-Filtration System Maintenance
For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something you 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. Take advantage of our Filter Membership Program to help you stay on track with regular filter maintenance. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at KCA SERVICES.

Confident my air units are in good hands. Thank you
Great Job, As Always
Joseph did a great job, as always. He explained everything he was doing and answered all my questions. My only issue is the cost of these semi-annual maintenance visits. Too $$$. — Linda C.
