Pre-Service Checklist

What to Check Before You Call

Calling your YORK® Contractor for a routine service call or to check up on a potential issue is a great way to keep your system running exactly as it should for years to come – but there are a few easy steps to make sure you get the most out of the visit. Before calling, take a moment to make sure you're prepared.

Here are a few things to do in preparation for your service appointment. These simple steps will help your YORK® Contractor complete the call and more quickly discover anything that should be addressed. 

  • Review the troubleshooting guide and be prepared to explain the issues that you're experiencing.
  • Check your air filter. A dirty air filter is a common cause of problems.
  • Write down the model numbers of all your YORK® products.
  • Know how long ago your problem began.
  • Make sure the system is accessible – remove anything blocking your system.
  • If it's the first time your YORK® contractor is visiting, make sure you know where every YORK® unit is located. 
  • Inform your contractor of any smart home connected devices. 
  • Gather any notes you have on previous service visits/repairs completed.
  • Keep pets in a separate room so they don't get overly excited.
  • Arrange for an adult (18 or over) to be home to legally allow entry.
  • Provide a phone number to receive a call from the technicians confirming the service visit.
  • If you rent your home, get your landlord's permission to have your system serviced.
  • If you discover your heat pump or air conditioner is frozen, shut it off and allow it to thaw before the technician arrives.
