Why a Maintenance Agreement Should Be On Your New Year’s To-Do List

Let’s toast to maintenance agreements in 2019!

Is getting an HVAC maintenance agreement on your to-do list for the New Year? If not, it’s time to put it at the top of the list. If you’re on the fence, let’s take a look at all of the benefits regular heating and cooling system maintenance provide.

What Happens during Regular Maintenance?

When a technician services your HVAC system in the spring and in the fall, there is a basic checklist they will follow. This list should include:

  • Inspecting the motor and the blower
  • Testing and calibrating the thermostats
  • Changing the air filter
  • Checking the bearings and moving parts
  • Inspecting the evaporator coil of your AC unit
  • Clearing the condensate drain in the AC unit
  • Checking and adjusting the refrigerant levels
  • Lubricate all of the moving parts
  • Checking for leaks
  • Testing the pilot light and ignition system
  • Inspecting the ventilation and exhaust systems
  • Checking the fan belt
  • Inspecting the heat exchangers

What Are the Benefits of a Maintenance Agreement?

Having a maintenance agreement in place is so much easier than just scheduling a service call when you remember. An agreement ensures your HVAC system will get regularly serviced, twice a year, and will make it easy for you to schedule it. This means you can count on an extended lifespan for your equipment, greater energy efficiency, reduced chance of breakdowns and need for repairs, and more reliable and consistent performance.

When it’s time for service on your heating and cooling system, don’t rely on memory to make sure it gets scheduled. Put your HVAC’s TLC on the top of your 2019 to-do list and rest easy knowing your system will continue to keep you comfortable through the next new year.
