Can maintenance agreements save me money when a repair is needed?
Maintenance agreements are one of your best investments when it comes to your HVAC system. There are so many benefits to keeping your system running smoothly, including reduced costs when it comes to your energy bill as well as less expensive repairs if and when they’re needed. Here’s why:
Maintenance Agreements and the Condition of Your Equipment
Regular maintenance on your heating and cooling system is the best way to prevent wear and tear to the equipment. Regular service will keep it running at its peak to prevent breakdowns and improve efficiency. Here’s a basic checklist of what happens during regular maintenance:
- Thermostat check and adjustment
- Lubrication of all moving parts
- Inspection of the condensate drain
- System control check
- Electrical connections check
For air conditioning:
- Clean and inspect evaporator and condenser coil
- Check refrigerant level
- Check and adjust blower components
For heating system:
- Check connections
- Adjust burner and heat exchanger
Cost of Repairs Post-Maintenance
Even with regular maintenance, issues can arise with your heating and cooling system. With so many moving parts and a variety of circumstances, it’s possible you will need repair service at some point between maintenance service appointments. The good news is that repairs are less expensive when you take advantage of a good maintenance agreement and have a well-maintained system.
When your HVAC gets regular TLC, it is going to be in better working order overall. It’s going to run more efficiently, there’s going to be less wear to the parts, it will be cleaner, and there will be less random small issues that crop up over time. If you have a breakdown it’s generally going to be something specific that can be fixed and have you back in business without going through the lengthy and labor-intensive process of doing all of the work, adjustments, and inspections that should have been done on a regular basis. This will save you time and money.
