HVAC maintenance agreements have many benefits, but one of the best things they do is keep you warm in the winter. Did you know that regular maintenance can keep your heating system running more smoothly with fewer issues, and it can even lower your utility bills? And that’s not all you can expect from a maintenance visit this winter.

What Can a Maintenance Visit Do For You?

A HVAC maintenance visit is more than just checking to be sure nothing’s broken, although that is a big part of it. When a heating system gets regular attention, it’s more likely that small issues will be caught and repaired before they become big problems. But on top of that, a maintenance visit will ensure the system is clean and running at its peak. This will help improve your energy efficiency as well as extend the life of your equipment by reducing wear and tear.

What Happens during Winter Maintenance?

Cutting down on repair costs and increasing the performance of your heating system is done with a winter service checklist. This checklist includes the following:

  • Check and change or clean air filter
  • Check and calibrate thermostats and settings
  • Check and tighten electrical connections
  • Lubricate and inspect all moving parts
  • Check, inspect, and clear condensate drain
  • Check system controls
  • Check gas connections, burners, and heat exchangers

Winter maintenance for your heating system is a must-have to keep it running smoothly, prevent breakdowns, and keep your utility bills in check.
