How Often Should I Get My HVAC Unit Checked?

Have you considered the ROI of maintenance agreements?

Maintenance agreements answer all those pesky questions regarding when to check your HVAC equipment and what maintenance needs to be completed once or more each year. They also provide an excellent return on your investment.

Consider the following benefits when deciding whether to service your equipment on your own or to hire the job out:

Receive two maintenance visits a year

Columbia, SC homeowners enrolled in maintenance agreements can schedule a system check—once during spring and again in the fall. Two professional calls are generally all you need to keep your equipment running as efficiently as possible. Homeowners performing their own checks may want to give their systems a cursory check whenever they change their filters.

Get a heads up when repairs are needed

Certified HVAC technicians have both the tools and the skills needed to check for worn down components. This helps you get a head start on necessary repairs, so you aren’t surprised by a breakdown in the middle of a winter storm or summer heatwave.

Extend the life of your HVAC equipment

The more efficient your system is and more effort you put into its upkeep, the longer it will last. You likely invested in high-quality equipment from Lennox, Rheem, Trane, or another trustworthy brand, so put that money to its best use by taking good care of your units for as long as you can.

Enjoy the fringe benefits

Certain repair shops provide extra benefits to customers who enroll in their maintenance plans. For instance, Carolina Comfort, Inc.’s Cool Zone members get a 10-percent discount on repair parts and receive priority service. Join and you can get your heating or air conditioning back up and running in record time.
