SMECO members must have an air-source heat pump or central air conditioner that is at least three years old to be eligible. For rental properties, the contractor may ask for owner approval before performing program services.

What Can I Expect?

During your appointment, a SMECO authorized contractor can help you save energy and money by restoring your system to its optimal condition through:

  • System Performance Check
  • Electrical inspection
  • Coil inspection
  • Refrigerant level inspection
  • Indoor and outdoor coil cleaning (if accessible)
  • Condensate drain cleaning (if accessible)
  • Filter Replacement (if provided)

Preparing for the Tune-up

Ensure that the areas around your equipment are cleaned out to make it easy for your technician to gain access.  Please see the following requirements for getting a Tune-up:

  • For customers that have an Air Source Heat Pump (all electric homes) a tune-up can only be performed when the temperature is above 35 degrees.
  • For customers that have a Furnace or any other means of heating, a central air conditioning tune-up can only be performed when the temperature is above 65 degrees.
