    Meeting with homeowner about hvac maintenance

    Whether you've recently installed a brand new HVAC system or repaired an existing one, you can benefit greatly from maintenance agreements. These contracts guarantee your providers will conduct the services needed to keep your HVAC system running smoothly for as long as possible.

    Check out these top benefits of professional maintenance agreements:

    • Improvements in system efficiency
    • Regular visits from HVAC technicians can significantly enhance your system's efficiency. This is greatly beneficial for your monthly bill, of course, but it also promotes greater durability on a long-term basis. The more efficiently air moves over the coil, the less your system has to work—and the less likely it is to wear out in the near future.

    • Increased likelihood of regular tune-ups
    • Most homeowners and business owners have a basic grasp of the importance of regular tune-ups, but this understanding doesn't necessarily lead to scheduling appointments as often as necessary. Life gets busy and often, the HVAC system is the first thing to fall through the cracks. Maintenance agreements keep you accountable, thereby ensuring that service technicians show up as often as they should, and not just when HVAC issues arise.

    How often should I schedule tune-ups?

    Energy Star recommends having your HVAC system checked at least twice every year. Consider scheduling appointments on or around each daylight savings time. During these bi-annual tune-ups, technicians will:

    • Change your system's air filters
    • Clean condenser coils
    • Lubricate all moving parts
    • Calibrate the thermostat
    • Check air flow
