If I own a good piece of equipment, why do I still need to have maintenance done?
Good Question! Your heating and cooling system may be extremely reliable and efficient now; however, annual maintenance can make sure it stays that way. Proper maintenance will help ensure that your equipment will be professionally cleaned and maintained, increasing its longevity and efficiency. Many manufacturers require maintenance for you to keep your parts and labor warranty valid.
What maintenance does your service professional do that's worth the cost of a Comfort Plan?
Cleaning and checking your equipment on a regular basis is similar to the kind of maintenance your car needs to run properly. When you properly maintain your air conditioning and heating equipment you receive the following benefits: you will help prevent the need for expensive repairs and potential property damage; your equipment's lifetime will be extended; and, you may enjoy significant reductions in your monthly utility bills.
Service plans are generally scheduled for the spring and fall to maintain peak efficiency, help keep utility bills lower, extend the life of your HVAC system, and avert failures. Sometimes service plans are referred to as "planned maintenance agreements," "start and checks," or "preventive service agreements." Most agreements offered cover an inspection of the entire HVAC system and routine maintenance (such as replacing or cleaning filters).
Out of Sight, NOT Out of Mind
The cliché "out of sight, out of mind" is often the reason for neglected maintenance on your HVAC system. HVAC systems are usually installed where they aren't seen, such as in a section of the basement, a closet, on rooftops, or in mechanical rooms, making them easy to ignore. The systems are simply taken for granted, until they fail. Decreased efficiency, utility over-payment, discomfort, loss of productivity, premature replacement, and higher repair costs are the result. Getting your HVAC system checked twice annually is just as important as changing the oil in your car every 3,000 miles!
