Maintenance Agreements

Want to save some money? One of the best ways to do it is regular preventative maintenance on your home’s systems, including your air conditioner and furnace. When you do, they will perform more efficiently, leading to more savings on your energy bills and fewer breakdowns.

Why regular maintenance?

Homeowners are always on the lookout to save money and feel like routine maintenance will cost a lot of money. As a result, they wait until something happens to their furnace or air conditioner to call a heating, ventilating, and air conditioning or HVAC service company, like Best Heating & Cooling. When you wait, it ends up costing more for a repair or replacement than the cost of regular maintenance. It invariably ends up inconveniencing you on the coldest or hottest day of the year when your service company is backed up with many other calls too. When you’re on an annual schedule, it saves you time and money and pays for itself with lower repair costs and a more efficient heating and cooling system.

More reasons why…

  • If your unit is not running properly it may be working too hard, resulting in inconsistent air temperatures and reduced comfort.
  • Your heating and cooling system becomes less efficient and reliable as it accumulates dust and dirt throughout the year – which costs you money in increased utility and repair bills. In fact, as much as half of your energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. It stands to reason that making smart decisions regarding your HVAC system can have a large impact on your utility bills.
  • Most manufacturers require routine maintenance in order to validate the warranty. Without regular maintenance you may be invalidating your warranty! Routine maintenance will protect you from major system repairs and maintain your manufacturer’s warranty, so if you do have a problem you’ll still be covered.
  • When it’s properly maintained, you can add years (3-5 years in some cases) to the life of your heating and air conditioning system, adding years of efficient use.
  • Part of your yearly inspection involves lubricating all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause resistance in motors and increase the amount of electricity you use. This resistance can also cause equipment to wear out more quickly, requiring more frequent repairs or replacements.
  • Another part of system maintenance is inspecting the blower components, making sure to clean and adjust them. That helps insure proper airflow so you’re more comfortable. Airflow problems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 15 percent.
