Do I Really Need A/C Maintenance?

There are so many responsibilities when you become a homeowner. One of the most important is to save as much money as possible while properly maintaining your home.

A Maintenance Agreement for your heating and air conditioning system is one investment that could end up being the best financial decision you make this year.


If you don't already know, regular maintenance on your heating and air conditioning system is vital to its operation and efficiency. Those who don't often deal with unexpected breakdowns that leave them without air conditioning during some of the most uncomfortable weather.

Why is HVAC Maintenance Important?

Your HVAC system requires regular maintenance and care. If you don’t clean and maintain the system, its performance will decline and eventually the system will fail. This will force you to spend money on a repair or system replacement. Regular maintenance ensures that your heating and air conditioning system delivers consistent, safe, efficient comfort for as long as possible.


During a maintenance visit, or clean & check, a technician performs a complete inspection of your air conditioning system. They will provide you with their findings, including necessary repairs. Even if nothing is wrong, they may still make some adjustments, like tightening electrical connections, sealing small duct leaks, cleaning the condensate drain line, and more to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently.


According to Energy Star, up to 80% of all heating and air conditioning system failures could be eliminated if the problems that led to the failure were corrected in a timely manner. In a lot of cases, a technician may see a sign of something that is about to fail and avoid a future breakdown.
