Like a car or any advanced piece of machinery, your heating and air-conditioning equipment is complex, with an array of parts and pieces that all need to work together in unison for the entire machine to function properly. Also like a vehicle, gas furnaces and air conditioners need to be checked for general wear and tear, oil and refrigerant leaks, potential safety risks, and they need to have their air filters replaced. In other words, they require regular maintenance in order to last.
Most of us would agree, it is essential that your HVAC system be in great working condition year-round, especially during those summer months when the heat is unbearable or during the frigid cold of winter. Maintaining your heating, ventilation, and cooling systems is vital for optimum enjoyment of your home. Not only does it ensure peace-of-mind and lasting comfort, but proper HVAC maintenance can also help save you a lot of money by reducing energy waste and lowering your electric bill.
HVAC Maintenance Agreements
There is no doubt that heating and cooling equipment is complicated and costly, so most homeowners decide to protect their investment by enlisting the help of experts. Giving a small amount of attention to your system and contacting your HVAC service provider about an appropriate maintenance agreement will pay off in a big way in the long run.
Preventative maintenance is the best way to avoid major breakdowns and costly repairs. Comprehensive service agreements include visits from certified HVAC technicians who are well versed in the intricacies of all types of thermal comfort systems. At Aliso Air, almost all of our agreements offer free labor on maintenance performed during a preventative maintenance service call.
When and How Often
Experts recommend, at the very least, performing a comprehensive pre-season examination of your heating and cooling apparatus. Even in a moderate climate, it is important to make sure every single hose, coil, screw, and bolt is in top shape before the seasonal weather hits. A system breakdown during a cold snap or a heat wave is extremely uncomfortable and may even be dangerous for you and for your family. You wouldn’t want to be stuck in a home without heat in the middle of winter or sweltering without AC when temperatures rise.
It is important to remember that unlike an auto mechanic, these highly trained professionals provide at-home, consistent, and hassle-free checkups whenever it is most convenient for your schedule. They can keep your HVAC system running smoothly year round.
