Why HVAC Maintenance Plans Are Worth It

The condition of your HVAC system is very important because it promotes home comfort and strong indoor air quality. But a well-functioning HVAC system doesn’t happen spontaneously. Your furnace and air conditioner work vigorously each and every day, which subjects them to a large range of common troubles.

These issues are frequently simple enough that they rarely stop your furnace or air conditioner from functioning. However, they may affect energy efficiency—and your heating and cooling costs. If these issues worsen, your entire system may be at risk. These are headaches and costs you may bypass with routine HVAC maintenance.

Why HVAC Maintenance is Important

If a furnace or air conditioner was recently installed or seems to be working just fine, you might question why HVAC maintenance is necessary. Here’s what this yearly service does for you.

Keeps Your Warranty Valid

A warranty shields you when your HVAC system requires repairs. But passing on routine maintenance cancels your warranty. Spending a short amount on upkeep now could help you avoid expensive repairs that your warranty would otherwise cover.

Reveals Little Issues in Advance

Averting major problems in the first place is the simplest approach to protect your HVAC system. Yearly maintenance visits allow the opportunity to thoroughly check and lubricate important internal systems. It also offers an opportunity for repairs before the peak heating or cooling season appears. You’ll spend less money in the long run if problems are repaired as they appear.

Could Boost Energy Efficiency

Yearly maintenance is about more than reducing the likelihood of breakdowns. It’s also about keeping your system functioning as well as possible. The stronger performance might lower your energy expenses by close to 30%.

Can Help Your System Last Longer

When your HVAC system runs the way it should, it can live years longer. Most furnaces and air conditioners average a 15-year life span, but annual maintenance may extend this even longer.
