Alpine Specialty Services is a proud member of the ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America). This is the platinum standard for HVAC service & repair companies. You can be assured we have had the right training, continuing education, and safety procedures to get the job done correctly.  Alpine’s ACCA-certified technicians can perform two different tune-up levels for your heating and air conditioning system. If additional service is needed, our technicians will always quote upfront pricing before any service is performed.

GOLD Tune Up Package:

Indoor Efficiency

  • Check thermostat functionality and control.
  • Check Filtration System
  • Check for exterior moisture or Rust.
  • Clean Cabinet and compartments

Electrical

  • Inspect the electrical disconnect box.
  • Visually inspect electrical connections and wires.

Blower Assembly

  • Check the Blower Motor

Condensate Removal and safety – If high efficiency

  •   Visually inspect the secondary heat exchanger compartment. (Blower removal can be added at the time of service if needed/recommended)
  •  check the HE pan.
  •  Visually inspect drainage.

Gas Combustion

  • Inspect & Clean burners.
  • Check the flue for signs of water, corrosion, and blockage.
  • Test inducer fan motor and blower assembly.
  • Visually Inspect the heat exchanger for signs of corrosion, fouling, structural problems (e.g., cracks, perforations, and bulges), and erratic flame operation during blower operation.
  • Inspect the hot surface igniter for cracks (white spots when energized or check cold with an ohmmeter and proper supply voltage).
  • Test main burner ignition sequence and flame safety; verify proper operation.
  • Inspect the spark igniter and associated wiring. Verify that the spark gap complies with OEM specifications.

Venting

  • Basic visual inspection

Platinum Tune Up Package:

Items included

  • Free filter
  • New battery installation in the thermostat
  • Anti-microbial insert for High-efficiency pans

Indoor Efficiency

  • Indoor IAQ Test and report.
  • Check thermostat functionality and control.
  • Visually examine for duct Leakage.
  • Evaluate Attic Insulation Level (include picture)
  • Check the Filtration System (replace the filter if available)
  • Check for exterior moisture or Rust.
  • Inspect cabinet, cabinet fasteners, and cabinet panels.
  • Inspect the required clearance of the cabinet.
  • Clean Cabinet and compartments

Electrical

  • Inspect the electrical disconnect box.
  • Ensure proper equipment grounding.
  • Measure and record line voltage.
  • Inspect electrical connections and wires.
  • Inspect motor capacitors.
  • Measure and record amperage draw to motor/nameplate data (FLA) as available.

Blower Assembly

  • Test & clean the Blower Motor
  • Test variable frequency drive (e.g., ECM) for proper operation. If applicable
  • Inspect fan belt tension. Inspect belts and pulleys for wear and tear. (Replace as necessary)
  • Confirm the fan blade or blower wheel has a tight connection to the blower motor shaft. Inspect the fan for free rotation and minimal end play. Measure and record amp draw

Static Pressure

  •  Measure and record system efficiency

Condensate Removal and safety – If high efficiency

  • Remove the Blower and inspect the secondary heat exchanger.
  • Evaluate HE pan.
  • Inspect drainage and test the water flow.

Gas Combustion

  • Inspect & Clean burners.
  • Check the flue for signs of water, corrosion, and blockage.
  • Test inducer fan motor and blower assembly and measure amp draw for functionality.
  • Inspect the heat exchanger for signs of corrosion, fouling, structural problems (e.g., cracks, perforations, and bulges), and erratic flame operation during blower operation.
  • Visually inspect burners for signs of contamination.
  • Inspect the hot surface igniter for cracks (white spots when energized, or check cold with an ohmmeter and proper supply voltage).
  • Test main burner ignition sequence and flame safety; verify proper operation.
  • Inspect the spark igniter and associated wiring. Verify that the spark gap complies with OEM specifications.
  • Ensure combustion air volume or provision is correct.
  • Perform combustion analysis test. Measure and record test results.
  • Measure and record TD across the heat exchanger.

Venting

  • PVC Is sch. 40 if high efficiency.
  • Inspect the vent exhaust system (e.g., chimney, chimney liner, flue, inlet, and exhaust vent) for signs of improper condensation, water corrosion, cracks, fractures, and blockages.
  • Inspect all vent connectors for rust discoloration or signs of condensation.
  • Inspect the inlet and exhaust vent pipe for proper support, slope, and termination.
  • Inspect for combustible materials placed too close to the vent or pipe.
