Maintenance agreements come with all sorts of appliances, but are they valuable? Do you really need them? When it comes to your heating system the answer is yes. But you can’t just buy some random maintenance agreement and then forget about it. You want to work with a reliable company who will provide the service you need.
What Are the Benefits of Maintenance Agreements?
Regular maintenance on your heating system helps it run better, longer, while using less energy. A system that is clean, adjusted and calibrated regularly, and inspected yearly will have fewer problems over time than one that isn’t. You’ll be able to catch small issues before they become big problems, reduce daily wear and tear on the moving parts, and extend the life of the equipment.
What Happens during Maintenance?
There are some important steps to remember during heating system maintenance. Here is a list of 7 of them:
- 1. Change the air filter
- 2. Inspect and lubricate moving parts and mechanical components
- 3. Test electrical connections
- 4. Check and calibrate the thermostat
- 5. Clean the unit, including the heat exchanger
- 6. Monitor the air flow and make adjustments if necessary
- 7. Observe burner to ensure it’s functioning properly
All of these steps should be done by a certified HVAC technician to make sure your heating system is running properly and is prepped for winter. Your HVAC system should be serviced twice a year, once in the spring before cooling season and once in the fall before you turn on the heat when the weather gets cool.
There are many things you can do to get your house ready for winter, including prepping your heating system. For more information on maintenance agreements for your HVAC, contact the team at Universal Heating and Cooling by calling 615-859-0985 or by clicking here.
