Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

HVAC Maintenance Plans and How They Can Work for You

HVAC Maintenance Plans and How They Can Work for YouWhen you have problems with your HVAC system, it’s either inconvenient, expensive or costs you comfort and money. One of the best ways to avoid these headaches is by taking advantage of HVAC maintenance plans. These include regular service and many other useful benefits to keep your system healthy.

Benefits of HVAC Maintenance Plans

  1. Regular maintenance. Cleaning and trying to figure out if there’s something harming the performance of your HVAC system requires professional knowledge. These regular visits, often annually, prevent major breakdowns and keeps your system running at peak efficiency.

  2. Part and labor discounts. While it will vary by company, if you compare the cost of an emergency repair visit with what you’re getting with a maintenance plan, you will almost always save money.

  3. Smaller bills. The regular maintenance will ensure that your HVAC system’s efficiency doesn’t drop because of dirt, leaks or any number of other causes. While it won’t be obvious, you will save a significant amount over the years as your energy bills stay relatively constant.

  4. Priority help. If you are a regular customer of a service company, as you would be with a maintenance agreement, you are a priority. If an emergency comes up at your home, you will often be able to get same day service, regardless of the day.

These are just some of the benefits of HVAC maintenance plans, talk to local options to find out specific details of what they can offer you.
