It’s vital that your heating and cooling equipment works when you need it to. To make sure that happens, your HVAC system should receive regular service and maintenance. Because there’s more to the process than regularly changing air filters, entering into an HVAC service agreement can offer you the security you need concerning home comfort and energy efficiency.
Whether your equipment requires a spring or fall checkup, you can expect your experienced HVAC professional to do the following on each visit under the HVAC service agreement:
- Lubricate all moving parts.
- Evaluate thermostat accuracy.
- Tighten electrical and gas connections.
- Check safety controls.
- Inspect the condensation drain.
Expect the technician to perform additional cooling specific operations, including cleaning the air conditioning unit and condenser coils, checking the coolant level and making any necessary adjustments to the system. After servicing, you’ll likely notice that your equipment operates more quietly and efficiently — reducing utility costs.
Heating-specific services provided under the HVAC service agreement will depend on whether your system uses gas, oil or electric, and it will include a complete evaluation of the unit’s connections. Other applicable checks will ensure that the gas pressure is adequate and that the burner combustion and heat exchanger are in sound, working condition. It’s best to catch any problems in the heating system early, due to the potential dangers involved in malfunctions, as well as to extend the lifespan of the unit.
Ultimately, an HVAC service agreement will benefit your home and family in numerous ways, and contracting with a professional for preventive maintenance allows you the security of knowing that the job is done properly. The plan also allows customers to enjoy priority scheduling and discounts on repair costs when the need arises.
