Your heating and cooling systems work very hard throughout the year to provide the cool comfort of your home. Like all machines, HVAC systems can break down over time, and if those issues are left unaddressed, it can lead to expensive repairs and system replacement. That’s why the factory-trained technicians at Scott Walker Heating and Air proudly offer HVAC maintenance plans to keep your heating and cooling systems in good working order.
What’s Involved in an HVAC Maintenance Check?
Air conditioners, heat pumps and furnaces are fairly complex machines that have many interconnected parts. An issue with any component can cause others to become damaged as well, so it’s important to be thorough when it comes to maintenance. During a typical maintenance check, our technicians will do all of the following:
- Inspect and clean or replace air filters
- Check the refrigerant level and recharge if needed
- Tighten electrical connections and check for rust or corrosion
- Check burners and ignition on furnaces
- Check fuel lines and tanks
- Inspect and calibrate thermostat and other control systems
Our preventive maintenance plan is $175 per year and $100 for each additional system. We clean and service your AC unit in the spring and heating units in the fall. Take advantage of priority services and a 10 percent discount on services or repairs.
Our technicians proudly repair and maintain all makes and models of HVAC systems, so no matter what you have, we can help.
Benefits of Preventive Maintenance Services
The major benefit of preventive maintenance is just that: prevention. HVAC issues don’t fix themselves; they get worse over time. Through our annual service visits, we can clear up any small, emerging issues before they can turn into big problems, which prevents expensive future repairs and extends the lifespan of your system. The cost savings on those future repairs and system replacements more than outweighs the cost of maintenance.
A second key benefit is energy efficiency. During our maintenance visit, we will make calibration adjustments and clear up any problems that could be causing your system to run less efficiently, and you’ll see the difference on your next utility bill. A properly maintained system is an efficient system, and if you’re seeing unexpectedly high utility bills, preventive maintenance may be the key to bringing them back down.
Finally, there is an invaluable peace of mind that comes with knowing that your HVAC systems have been professionally maintained and given a clean bill of health. No matter how cold it gets in the middle of winter or how sweltering hot a summer heat wave becomes, you can live free from the fear that your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump might unexpectedly shut down. In short, when you invest in preventive maintenance, you are refusing to take chances with your comfort, safety and health.
