If there are any problems, the warranty should cover the cost
I have learned the importance of maintenance for my furnace and air conditioner. After paying to replace a heating system that wasn’t all that old due to neglected upkeep, I enrolled in a service program with a local HVAC contractor. The service plan isn’t all that expensive and provides priority scheduling, discounts on parts and labor and no extra fees for overtime repairs. Plus, the company calls me in the fall to remind me to schedule a tune-up for the furnace and again in the spring for the air conditioner. A licensed technician comes to the house and completes a thorough checklist of essential tasks. He inspects all components for wear and tears and makes necessary adjustments and replacement. He tightens electrical connections, lubricates moving parts and verifies the performance of the thermostat. A comprehensive cleaning removes any buildup of contaminants such as dust, dander and mold growth. These procedures maximize airflow through the system. The furnace and air conditioner don’t need to run as long or as often to maintain ideal temperature. There is less chance of air pollution, energy waste or malfunction. Because the system operates at peak efficiency, I pay less in utility bills. I can expect the heating and cooling equipment to provide superior comfort and last longer. Keeping up with annual maintenance fulfills the manufacturer’s warranty requirements. If there are any problems, the warranty should cover the cost. I like the peace of mind of knowing I am taking the very best care of my furnace and air conditioner. Since investing into the maintenance plan, I’ve had no concerns with either system.
