What Benefits Can You Get With an HVAC Maintenance Agreement?
Whether you own a heat pump, a packaged unit that combines a heat pump with a furnace, or a series of ductless mini-splits, you’ll want it to get yearly, professional maintenance. The experts agree: It’s not enough to simply change your air filter once in a while. A lot more goes into keeping your AC and heater running smoothly and for years to come. Here are some benefits of a maintenance agreement.
Long Life for Your System
For reference, gas furnaces and ducted heat pumps can last a good 10 to 15 years, but that’s only with regular maintenance. Oil and electric furnaces can go for 20 to 25 years, and mini-splits could keep going for 30 years. With maintenance, then, you can push back the costly process of replacement for many more years.
A durable system is also going to be an energy-efficient system, one that uses a minimum of energy to do its job. You’ll enjoy regular 10- to 15-minute heating and cooling cycles with nothing out of the ordinary like loud noises or bad odors. You may even notice a decrease in the amount you pay each month on utilities. As a side note, maintenance often leads indirectly to an improvement in indoor air quality since HVAC systems have a part to play in stabilizing humidity levels.
Fewer Repairs During the Year
During maintenance, the technician will make adjustments, clean the internal components, and do much else to eliminate small, hidden issues. Without maintenance, these issues can grow and potentially lead to a part wearing out prematurely and causing a system breakdown. By avoiding these situations for the most part, you experience greater peace of mind.
