Are you wondering if an HVAC maintenance plan is worth the cost? What does such a plan include anyway?
The truth is that plan amenities and services vary depending on the type of HVAC unit you own and which company is handling the maintenance. However, here are some common – yet important – services you can expect from most service agreements.
Twice-Yearly Service Checks
HVAC units should be checked before you turn on the AC unit in the summer or switch to heating in the winter. A good service check should include:
- Cleaning the condenser fins
- Visual inspections of coils and other components
- Removing accumulated debris (on outdoor units)
- Adding oil to motor oil ports
- Examining all electrical connections and replacing loose or corroded wires
- Changing the air filter
- Checking and calibrating the thermostat
- Examining all system components to ensure they are in optimal, safe working order
- Removing any water that has backed up in the condensate drain
Most home and business owners know that an HVAC unit needs to be serviced twice a year. However, many don’t realize that scheduling this service via a maintenance plan can save the time and hassle it usually takes to make an appointment during peak seasons. Avoid having to wait your turn by signing up for a service agreement to ensure your HVAC equipment is serviced at your convenience.
As an added benefit, individuals with a service agreement get priority service when emergency repairs are needed. If something breaks down, you can call your company and expect immediate assistance even during busy seasons. This form of assistance is imperative for business owners who need a comfortable indoor setting for workers and clients.
HVAC service companies value long-term clients and may offer discounts and special deals to those who sign up for a maintenance plan. Knight’s Mechanical, for instance, offers maintenance plan members a 10% discount on all heating, cooling, and plumbing repair jobs.
