It’s crucial to perform regular repairs and maintenance on your heating and cooling systems to keep your home safe and comfortable all-year-round, during the hot, humid days of summer and frosty winter season. In fact, a well-maintained air conditioning unit can last for nearly 14 years, while a furnace that frequently undergoes the same tune-up procedures can last from 15 to 20 years.
Fortunately, you can actively protect your investment for many years to come by signing up for an HVAC maintenance plan. Here are three reasons:
- It’s more convenient. Scheduling semi-annual maintenance visits can easily slip your mind, especially if you’re already swamped with daily household chores and work tasks. Having a definite schedule for your HVAC appointments eliminates the chance of forgetting to have your furnace and air conditioning units inspected, cleaned and repaired.
- It helps lower your energy bills. One of the key perks of getting a maintenance plan is that it can save you money on energy bills because it makes your systems more efficient. Dirty, rusty or moldy HVAC equipment will restrict airflow, compromising your indoor air quality and forcing your system to work harder to produce the same amount of heating or cooling.
- It provides preventive maintenance. A technician will check and verify if your HVAC system is running properly during a maintenance appointment. This includes cleaning and lubricating all unit components as needed, checking the fuel line and fuel levels, testing the pilot light, calibrating pressure and more. They’ll also identify and address potential mechanical issues that can develop into bigger, more costly problems in the future.
