Most of us don’t have regular maintenance preformed on our HVAC systems, even though studies show that good maintenance can cut HVAC energy costs while also extending equipment life, improving your comfort, and saving you money on costly repairs. Effective maintenance can reduce HVAC energy costs by 5 to 40 percent depending on the system or equipment involved. A variety of HVAC components need ongoing maintenance or energy performance degradation can occur. Regular scheduled HVAC maintenance programs of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems can increase their efficiency.
Some people feel that a home warranty is the answer versus having HVAC maintenance programs. Here are some reasons the HVAC maintenance program may be a better way to manage expenses and maintain a more efficient system.
- Semiannual inspections and professional cleanings ensure your HVAC system is running properly, and also extend the life of your system with proper maintenance. Those services are not included in home warranties; but they are free every six months under your HVAC maintenance plan.
- An HVAC maintenance plan saves you money when work is needed with discounts on repairs and parts and labor. Typically, home warranty companies place limits on what they will fix and also require a deductible to be paid prior to repairs being made.
- While a home warranty is strictly focused on providing a homeowner with repair and replacement, tune-ups provided with your HVAC maintenance plan result in savings on your monthly electric bill.
- When you have an emergency, an HVAC maintenance plan means you don’t have to wait for days for someone to come out and look at your system. You will be placed on a priority schedule and typically receive same-day service any time of the year.
Yes home warranty programs do cover many other items in your home, but what many people fail to notice is that here in the South the major of all calls made for service with your home warranty program are concerning your HVAC system. An annual maintenance plan is a low-cost, effective way to protect your A/C system compared to what you would pay for a traditional warranty company plan.
