Maintenance agreements serve as one of the easiest ways to obtain the regular HVAC maintenance your heating and cooling system needs to run at its best. There are several benefits for making sure you properly maintain your HVAC unit, including the following:
Over time, an HVAC system will break down and stop working unless you take proactive steps to repair or replace parts and components before they fail. If a part does fail, it can lead to major inconvenience or even more expensive trouble.
For instance, if the wiring is starting to degrade, it can cause an electrical problem. At best, you're looking at a blown fuse. At worst, expensive electrical components may need replacing. Repairing the wiring before any of this happens can potentially save money. At the very least, it will make sure your HVAC system isn't down for the time it takes to get repairs, which can feel like an eternity during a heat wave or cold snap.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Even though an HVAC system may be working, that doesn't mean it's working well. Air filters get clogged, coils need cleaning and air ducts occasionally start to leak. When these things happen, your central unit won't work as well. For example, the air handler works harder to move the same amount of air through clogged air filters. If your air ducts are leaking, precious cool or warm air vanishes before it can get to its destination in your home.
Of course, you can ensure your HVAC system gets the proper maintenance, but it's not easy to do it yourself. It takes dedication and a lot of learning to understand what to look for and how to prevent future problems. An alternative is signing up for a maintenance agreement, such as Griffin Heating & Air Conditioning's Service Club. Some of the advantages of joining, in addition to convenience and expert advice, are discounts on repairs, a labor warranty and prioritized service if repairs are inevitable.
