Magic Pak heating and cooling units are becoming increasingly popular in many multi-housing complexes and commercial properties.

Magic Pak Cleaning

What is a Magic Pak?
Magic Paks are compact heating and cooling units that operate through a wall duct. They provide comfort control options for many apartments and building occupants.

Why should the Magic Pak be cleaned?
It’s important to keep Magic Paks clean in order for them to run efficiently. Clean units will create better air flow, which means it will take less energy for it to run and therefore, will help the units operate effectively for years to come.

Magic Pak cleaning also eliminates overflows, water damage and odor caused by plugged, slimy or rusted condensate pans. Therefore, you’ll be saving yourself from having other repairs to make. In addition, Magic Paks can be a hiding place for mice, wasps and other pests, so it’s important to have them cleaned to remove any nests or debris left by these rodents or insects.

Preventative maintenance is always better than costly repairs. With regular Magic Pak cleaning, you will keep your residents comfortable and eliminate the need for emergency service calls due to leaks or other issues caused by an unclean unit. Regular maintenance also helps the units last longer, thus eliminating the need to replace the units as often.
