A Preventative Maintenance Plan Can Reduce Your Repairs

How A Preventive Maintenance Plan Can Reduce Your Repairs And Keep Your System Humming

Dec 22, 2011

Orlando residents count on their heating and air conditioning to stay comfortable indoors all year long. As the weather transitions into the cooler months, it’s time to think about preventive maintenance for your HVAC equipment.

Regular maintenance contributes to lower energy bills and helps your equipment last longer. When motors receive the oil they need and belts fit properly, there’s less wear and tear on the system. Technicians also clean the HVAC equipment, from the coils inside to those outside on condensers. When the dust is off the units, they operate more efficiently — saving you energy dollars.

Depending on the plan, you may receive priority assistance in an emergency along with discounts on parts, repairs and extended warranties. A licensed technician can show you how to keep the components of your HVAC equipment cleaner, so that it runs more smoothly. Annual checks of ducts for homes is a good idea, since lengths of ducts can separate or leak, costing you a lot more money to heat or cool home.

When choosing the kind of preventive-maintenance plan you want, consider the age of your home and your HVAC system. Read your owner’s manual for your heating and cooling system to learn what the manufacturer recommends for regular maintenance. Keep the records and receipts of the maintenance in case you need warranty work in the future in case an issue arises with the manufacturer.
