Don’t dismiss the idea of HVAC maintenance agreements. We all tend to be somewhat skeptical when it comes to spending money to maintain something we’ve just purchased. It’s new, right? It shouldn’t need maintenance, we reason. But when it comes to complex mechanical equipment like your heating and cooling system, keeping it tuned up is the best way to keep it working longer.

You Maintain Your Car, Why Not Your HVAC?

When you have equipment you rely on heavily, like your car and your heating and cooling system, you want to keep them in working order. Unlike something that just sits in a corner, these machines are working constantly with lots of moving parts and integrated components that make your life comfortable and safe. Just like your car, keeping your HVAC tuned up will not only keep it running at peak performance, but it will help to ensure a long life by preventing breakdowns thanks to regular inspections.

What Happens During an HVAC Maintenance Visit?

A good HVAC contractor will follow a broad to-do list when performing regular maintenance. The technician will catch small issues and repair them before they become big and expensive problems. But the other reason for regular maintenance is to make sure all of the parts are working together so your HVAC is as efficient as possible, for as long as possible. Here are a few of the basic items they will check, inspect, and adjust during routine maintenance:

  • Compressor Operation
  • Refrigeration Pressure
  • Condenser Coil
  • Fan Motors
  • Thermostat Calibration
  • Electrical Connections
  • Condensate Drain
  • Lubricate Bearings
  • Change Air Filters

It’s clear there are many benefits to regular HVAC maintenance agreement, including a longer life expectancy for your unit. Maintenance agreements with your HVAC dealer will keep you on track with those regular check-ups, making them a priority, and helping to take a little something off your to-do list since they’ll be done in a timely manner.
