The Ultimate Homeowners Guide to HVAC Maintenance Agreements


Do you have an HVAC maintenance agreement for your heating and cooling system? If not, it’s time to take a good hard look at why not, and a good hard look at why you should. Here’s the ultimate homeowners guide to HVAC maintenance agreements.

What Is an HVAC Maintenance Agreement?

You can buy a maintenance plan for all kinds of appliances and electronics, but one of the most important you should consider is one for your heating and air conditioning system. It’s a plan that covers twice-yearly service, plus some other perks. Most cover routine maintenance every spring before cooling season and every fall before it’s time to turn on the heat. They can also include preferred status, 24-hour emergency response, and reduced cost for parts, should repairs be necessary.

What Happens During HVAC Maintenance?

There are some basics that all HVAC maintenance plans should cover to take care of your unit and prevent future issues.

Spring air conditioner maintenance should include:

  • Checking the blower motor
  • Testing and calibrating the thermostat
  • Cleaning or changing the air filter
  • Inspecting the bearings for wear and tear
  • Inspecting the evaporator coil
  • Flushing and cleaning the condensate drain
  • Checking the refrigerant levels
  • Lubricating the moving parts

Fall furnace maintenance should include:

  • Testing for carbon monoxide leaks
  • Testing and calibrating the thermostat
  • Testing and checking the ignition system
  • Checking the ventilation and exhaust system
  • Inspecting the fan belt
  • Cleaning or changing the air filter
  • Lubricating the moving parts
