Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (or HVAC) describes all aspects of home and commercial air quality and services. Doing regular maintenance checks will not only keep your system running smoothly, but it also will save you money. Do you have a regular maintenance plan in place at your home?
It’s always a good idea to hire a professional to inspect and perform maintenance on your system every spring for the air conditioner and every fall for the heating unit. A professional can inspect and clean the wiring and mechanisms of each of the units and take care of the more challenging maintenance work that the average homeowner should not attempt on their own.
What Regular Maintenance Does an HVAC System Require?
Keeping up with regular maintenance can save you money and energy while prolonging the lifespan of your system. Proper maintenance will help ensure the unit can heat and cool your home efficiently.
There are many ways to increase the efficiency and lifespan of your system. One of the best ways is to frequently clean or replace air filters. Filters should be replaced once a month. Maintain airflow by keeping dust, dirt, and debris away from any system. Keep air-handling units free of restrictions.
Other ways include purchasing a programmable thermostat, keeping curtains drawn or installing shades in rooms that are more exposed to sunlight, and not blocking airflow by closing vents in multiple rooms.
An important HVAC safety measure is to make sure your home consists of working fire and carbon monoxide detectors. These can provide peace of mind that your HVAC system is not a hazard.
Why Invest in an HVAC Maintenance Plan?
A maintenance plan provides annual inspections that include filter replacement and tune-ups, warranties, priority services, and more. Korrect Plumbing offers the Comfort Care Plan to help customers save on utility bills and service calls. The Comfort Care Plan is a preventive approach to heating and cooling. All of your heating and cooling systems should be included in a regular inspection and maintenance program.
The benefits of the plan include giving you automatic peace of mind, along with periodic inspections, lubricating, adjusting and servicing of your heating and cooling system to keep it running at peak, trouble-free efficiency. Potential problems are spotted before they cause trouble.
The plan provides a competent, trained and dependable team of experts at your service that will work with you to schedule convenient service calls. A service agreement also increases system reliability, but should you need emergency service, your service agreement entitles you to preferential treatment. The agreement will be renewable from year to year unless canceled by either party.
