Are HVAC Maintenance Plans Really Worth It?

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

outdoor-ac-unitIt’s no secret people don’t do what’s good for them—and it’s no different when it comes to HVAC maintenance.

A survey in 2015 found that 80% of Americans delay in scheduling preventive health care. The unfortunate fact is “preventive care” doesn’t get anyone excited like “urgent care” does.

It’s the same with HVAC. Many homeowners would rather let their system break down before scheduling a maintenance check. So to help fight against this part of our human nature, HVAC contractors started making maintenance plans: a bundle of incentives for getting a homeowner to schedule their maintenance.

Of course, what everyone wants to know is: are maintenance plans really worth it?

Using qualities from our very own Ultimate Service Agreement Plan, we’ll let you decide:

Avon Heating and AC Guide: Maintenance Really Does Save Money

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

There is no better way to ensure your Avon heating and cooling system works optimally than to ensure they get proper annual maintenance. People generally do not realize the value of opting for maintenance contracts, especially if they have just purchased new systems. Remember however that a small fee paid annually can save you a lot of money in the long run.

There are many advantages of regular maintenance of your heating and cooling systems.

Advantage #1

When a technician visits to perform maintenance of your heating or cooling system, he checks whether all parts of the system are working well and also checks for any sign of wear and tear. He will replace any part that needs it, and he’ll also repair any malfunctioning parts to ensure that there is no unexpected breakdown in the coming months.

Advantage #2

You will spend much less on repairs or part replacement in the long run if you catch the problems early. If one of the parts of your heating or cooling system stops functioning, the entire system may continue to work. However the other parts will have to work overtime to compensate for the malfunctioning part and this leads to excessive wear and tear.

Advantage #3

Getting professional tune ups on a regular basis will also ensure that your system works at optimum energy efficiency. Even the best performing new units lose efficiency, and over a period of time this could result in costlier energy bills.

Advantage #4

You can be sure of paying less on energy each month if you opt for a regular annual maintenance package. No matter how old or new your heating and cooling system is, it is never too late to start. A regular tune up and thorough cleaning will definitely lead to reduced energy bills and optimum functioning of the system.

Extend the life of your Avon heating and air conditioning system through annual maintenance that will give you more for your money. Systems maintained by professionals on a regular basis can even perform well beyond their lifetime in some situations. Just for a minimum annual maintenance amount, you can be assured of long-term, efficient performance of your system.  To schedule an appointment or to learn more about our Ultimate Service Agreement Plan, call Westland Heating and Air Conditioning!
