You might not believe professional maintenance agreements are right for you, but it's possible you aren't fully aware of the ins and outs. Some homeowners believe maintenance is a waste of time or money, but these opinions come from an incomplete understanding of what these agreements can do. Following here are some facts about HVAC maintenance you might not have been aware of before.
Changing out filters is something most people could (and should) do. However, other issues fall beyond what non-experts should risk attempting. HVAC components can be as dangerous as electrical work. You run a serious risk of injury if you watch an instructional video and attempt to make intricate repairs yourself. For one thing, no video can replace the training a technician undergoes. For another, different units require different fixes, and only a professional will catch the more subtle issues at hand. By trying to perform your own maintenance, you could very well make things worse - which could lead to the need for costly repairs.
A sizable percentage of air conditioning malfunctions and breakdowns come as the result of poorly maintained units. Maintenance agreements ensure smaller issues get caught early on, which stops them from progressing into more serious, debilitating problems. Additionally, if your HVAC system runs into trouble and you attempt to make a warranty claim, you might not have coverage if the issues stem from a lack of maintenance.
If you believe maintenance agreements are a waste of money, you probably haven't given much thought to how much they can save you on utility costs. Regular maintenance will allow professionals to take the necessary steps toward keeping your system running at its best, which means it will utilize less energy. Less energy consumed translates directly to lower monthly bills - this is how a maintenance agreement can actually pay for itself over time.
