Preventive Maintenance Plans

Proper HVAC maintenance is one of the least expensive but most important things you can do for your furnace or air conditioner. HVAC systems are expected to operate in the hottest of summers and the coldest of winters, day and night, yet many homeowners fail to consider regular service. Just like a car needs routine oil changes and periodic scheduled maintenance, your furnace and air conditioning system need periodic preventive maintenance to operate efficiently and give you the longest possible operating life.

To ensure your HVAC system stays in good condition, we offer heating and air conditioning maintenance agreements that include two preventive service visits per year – one in the fall for a furnace tune-up and one in the spring for an AC tune-up. During an annual tune-up, the technician will check the fan for abnormal wear and tear. The motor will be checked, and the technician may use equipment to test for system leaks, and the coil will be cleaned to ensure that the heat transfer is occurring as efficiently as possible. If you haven’t been replacing your air filter, the technician will do that for you, too.

Why Invest in a Preventive Maintenance Plan?

Most manufacturers suggest that HVAC systems receive a tune-up annually. Looking over the system each year allows the technician to catch small issues before they become large ones. You could call each year to have service, but a much easier way is to sign up for one of our low-cost heating and air conditioning maintenance plans. We will then be responsible for the scheduled service so that you don’t have to worry about remembering to contact us.

The Importance of Changing Your Air Filter

Most manufacturers recommend replacing the filter on your system every 90 days, but you may wish to check it once a month to be sure dirt isn’t accumulating more rapidly. If you hold your filter up to the light and cannot see through it, replace it immediately. When filters become dirty, the tiny spaces through which air is drawn become blocked. This forces your system’s motor to work harder and can result in accelerated wear and more frequent breakdowns. Filters are designed to be replaced quickly and easily. This is one of the most important maintenance tasks that homeowners can do.
