Your heating and cooling equipment accounts for approximately half of your household energy costs throughout the year. The heavy activity of your system also leads to a lot of wear and tear. This makes it important to have your equipment inspected regularly so that fine-tuning can take place. HVAC maintenance plans are excellent for addressing these needs through pre-scheduled service.
What Is a Maintenance Plan?
It’s easy to forget about annual service of your heating or cooling equipment. Seasonal heating or cooling activity can creep up unexpectedly, and it’s easy to dismiss the need for system services. However, you may want to consider the fact that missing your pre-season tune-up actually robs you of important system benefits, including:
- Improved energy efficiency levels
- Lower utility costs
- Better home comfort control
- Stronger circulation of air
- Early identification of worn or broken parts
- Reduction in seasonal repair needs
- Extension of system life
- Access to the latest information about trends in HVAC technology
- Assistance in planning for the eventual replacement of system components
- Help with home performance and indoor air quality questions
- Savings on repairs, equipment and additional services
AC and Heat Pump Maintenance
Service of your cooling equipment should be handled in the spring so that you are ready for the hot, humid summer months. Your AC or heat pump will manage your home’s humidity levels in addition to cooling your indoor environment. Failure to service your system could leave you dealing with sweltering conditions, but programmed HVAC maintenance plans ensure that you will be contacted so that the need doesn’t slip your mind.
Coil cleaning and refrigerant recharging are two of the most important steps in fine-tuning your cooling equipment, each providing potential savings of up to 20 percent on your cooling costs. Dirty coils inhibit the transfer of heat between your indoor air supply and your refrigerant supply, making it tough to achieve comfortable conditions in your home. Cleaning the coils results in a cold stream of air flowing at excellent strength through your ducts. Low refrigerant levels can lead to stress on your compressor, shortening the life of your system. Planned maintenance can save you huge headaches and expenses. Your heat pump should be checked again prior to the winter heating season so that problems can be corrected.
Furnace Maintenance Plans
Having a tune-up before your furnace is placed in operation for the heating season is an investment in your family’s safety. The second greatest cause of house fires is home heating, and compromised equipment can place your family at risk. Additionally, cleaning and inspecting your equipment allows your technician to pinpoint problems that could lead to excessive carbon monoxide in your home.
Pricing and Maintenance Agreements.
Did you know that heating and cooling your home accounts for nearly half of your annual residential fuel use? One of the best ways to offset this and become more energy efficient is to properly maintain your equipment. To do this, we highly recommend biannual tune-ups – once in the fall for your furnace and once in the spring for your air conditioner – to ensure that your system operates correctly and efficiently.
