Custom Comfort Maintenance Program

It’s not easy to budget for home maintenance and repairs. This is especially true if you are a first-time home buyer or a senior on a fixed income. Unexpected repairs are needed from time to time, and regular maintenance is important to keep any gas or electric appliance running properly.

This provides your equipment with an annual inspection by a licensed technician, to help identify potential problems; under-performing components, fans, filters, motors, and the condition of fuel lines, electrical cables.
