One of the most expensive and important parts of your Peachtree City home is its HVAC system and like any complex system, it requires periodic maintenance to keep it running correctly and efficiently. An HVAC maintenance plan helps protect your investment, keeping your comfortable during the worst weather and saving you money by avoiding expensive emergency repairs.
Benefits of an HVAC Maintenance Plan:
- Regular inspections and maintenance: The typical HVAC maintenance plan provides at least two service visits a year, during which your contractor will inspect your system for problems and perform all of the periodic maintenance your system requires, such as cleaning the system, lubricating motors and moving parts, replacing air filters and testing safety systems. This process will catch any developing issues before they become major problems that require expensive emergency service.
- Discounts on major services and parts: Generally, if there is a serious problem, your HVAC maintenance plan entitles you to discounts on major services, such as installing a new furnace, and discounts on expensive parts, such as the compressor for an air conditioning system. Many plans offer additional services and perks, depending on the contractor.
- Reduced utility bills: Over time, many HVAC systems will gradually suffer from performance degradation, reducing a system’s overall efficiency and increasing your utility bills. With the regular maintenance provided by your service plan, however, your system will continue to perform almost as efficiently as when it was new and the savings on your monthly utility bills will add up quickly.
- Working with a trusted contractor: Rather than calling a random contractor every six months for service, a maintenance plan from a trusted contractor ensures that you get great service every time, and that your contractor is familiar with your system, its particular needs and your budget.
- Receiving emergency service: Because you already have a relationship with your contractor, you will be more likely to get fast service if, and when, there is a major emergency.
