Think Preventive Maintenance Is Questionable? Think Again

Regular maintenance is required to keep your heating and cooling equipment running optimally. This expensive and vital part of your Mid-Ohio home will malfunction and lead to an expensive repair or replacement bill if not properly maintained. Furthermore, a malfunctioning furnace, A/C or heat pump can put yourself and your family’s safety at risk. To keep your heating and cooling systems running properly, consider a preventive maintenance agreement.

Why have a preventive maintenance agreement

A properly maintained HVAC appliance reduces the chance of unexpected repairs and prolongs the life of the equipment. In addition, preventive maintenance keeps the heating and cooling appliance running at maximum energy efficiency, which means less energy will be consumed and your energy costs will decrease. Another benefit of a well-maintained HVAC system is improvedindoor air quality, which improves your overall well-being. A preventive maintenance agreement also provides you with the peace of mind that your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump is running the way it was designed to.

What to expect

Air filters are an important part of the HVAC system as well as a vital defense against an excessive amount of air impurities in your home. When the filter becomes clogged and dirty, it reduces airflow to your system, reducing efficiency and increasing the chance of breakdowns. During the HVAC maintenance, the technician will replace the filters and clean the coils (in an A/C or heat pump) as needed. The HVAC technician will also ensure the electrical connections are connected properly and apply lubricant to moving parts, which will reduce friction. During the HVAC servicing, the technician will ensure the condensation drain is not clogged, add refrigerant if needed, inspect blower components, fuel connections, burner combustion and the heat exchanger.
