Do you have a maintenance agreement for your HVAC system? If not, why not? There are many benefits you could be taking advantage of right now. Here’s what you need to know.

What Does an HVAC Maintenance Agreement Include?

Your heating and cooling system requires regular maintenance to keep running properly. Maintenance is usually required twice per year; once for the heating and once for the cooling.

Here’s what you can expect during air conditioner maintenance:

• Clean the condenser coil
• Inspect the evaporator coil
• Inspect blower wheels and parts
• Check refrigerant and adjust if necessary
• Inspect and change air filters
• Adjust belts and pulleys
• Lubricate motors and bearings
• Test and calibrate thermostat

Here’s what you can expect during heating system maintenance:

• Examine heat exchanger
• Inspect and change air filters
• Clean and test burner assembly
• Check flame sensors
• Monitor and test pilot
• Check safety controls
• Inspect blower wheels and parts
• Check gas line and combustion openings
• Test and calibrate thermostat

What Are the Benefits of HVAC Maintenance?

The primary benefit of heating and cooling system maintenance is the assurance your system is operating as it should. When you have professionals properly cleaning, testing and adjusting your HVAC system, and they are completing any minor repairs, you can be sure it will run at peak performance. This will save you money on costly repair bills down the road. It will also help your system run at its most efficient, which will save you money on your utility bills every month.

It’s important to get maintenance for your air conditioning every spring before the cooling season. Likewise, your heating system will need service every fall to prepare for the cool winter months. Regular maintenance will keep your system running well and help it to keep your home comfortable without the need for numerous costly repairs.

The right professional maintenance agreement will ensure your HVAC system gets the TLC it deserves every spring and every fall.
