A maintenance agreement with your HVAC contractor saves money and time in both the short-term and long-term life of your system. The typical HVAC system has an average life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. That’s the period of time when you can expect dependable operation and energy efficiency that still meets manufacturer’s original estimates. What you may not know is that manufacturer’s estimated lifespan figures and efficiency ratings are all based on the assumption that the cooling and heating system gets regular annual preventive maintenance from a qualified HVAC technician. Without that critical service, maybe you’ll get optimum performance and long service life — or maybe you’ll end up replacing the system years earlier than you expected, fed up with high operating costs and frequent repair bills.
Maintenance Makes A Difference
The central benefit of a maintenance agreement is free annual preventive maintenance performed by your HVAC contractor. A trained technician will be there at the outset of the heating and cooling season to clean, adjust and test your furnace or air conditioner, as well as detect any minor problems that could turn into major breakdowns later. This ensures efficiency, performance and safe operation that meets manufacturer’s specifications, as well as a trouble-free season of household comfort ahead. It also keeps you in compliance with the terms of most manufacturer’s warranties, which require proof of annual professional maintenance to keep coverage valid.
