Proactive Heating and AC Maintenance Service
Often, people wait until something is broken to call in the professionals. While it can feel like you’re saving money by only calling in help when it’s absolutely necessary, when it comes to your HVAC system, this approach can cost you hundreds–if not thousands–of dollars in the long run.
As your HVAC system ages, the wear and tear it undergoes can slow it down and cause it to run less efficiently. This, in turn, puts even more stress on your system, aging it prematurely and shortening its lifespan. Just like you need regular checkups to catch problems early and stay healthy, you can extend your HVAC system’s life and boost its performance by investing in long-term heating and AC maintenance services.
Proactive HVAC maintenance plans can save you money on energy bills by making your units more efficient. You’ll also save on major repair costs when small issues are fixed early on. And lengthening the shelf life of your system means more time to plan and budget before they have to be replaced.
What Happens During HVAC Maintenance?
When you sign up for One Call Service’s HVAC maintenance program, you are investing in the comfort and safety of your home. We offer twice a year services for all of your HCAV and air control systems. During a maintenance check, one of our skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect and clean your system.
If there are any indications that repair is needed or that a part will soon be in need of replacing, we will inform you and, with your go-ahead, fix the problem before it becomes a major issue. Cleaning out your system allows it to run more efficiently and prevents the possibility of the machinery degrading because of dust and debris building up. It also reduces the possibility of contaminants being blown into your home through the vents.
During our fall checkups, once the heat is turned back on, we also test for carbon monoxide to ensure the health and safety of you and your family.
Heating and AC Maintenance Service Cost
For $180 per year, you can avoid hundreds of dollars extra in major repairs and part replacements. Let our proactive maintenance services give you the gift of peace of mind.
The Benefits of Heating and AC Maintenance Services
1. Improve Your Home’s Air Quality
According to the EPA, indoor levels of airborne pollutants can be up to 2-5 times higher than outdoor levels. If you or a loved one suffer from respiratory illness such as asthma or COPD or have seasonal allergies, this can pose a significant health risk. The most common irritants and contaminants are:
- Dust mites
- Cigarette smoke
Preventative HVAC maintenance includes cleaning out the air ducts and other sections of the system responsible for circulating air around the house. It also ensures that your filters are replaced and all the machinery in your system is working as efficiently as possible to filter and clean your air.
If you have respiratory health concerns, talk to one of our knowledgeable and helpful HVAC specialists. They can help you design and implement a custom HVAC solution that keeps your air clean and healthy.
2. Increase Your Home’s Sustainability
A well-maintained HVAC system in peak condition consumes considerably less energy and fuel than one that is struggling. So for those concerned about their carbon footprint, HVAC maintenance can help!
All of our technicians have their EPA Section 608 Certification to safely handle controlled refrigerants. If you have concerns about sustainability and eco-friendly disposal, one of our qualified technicians can help you understand what type of refrigerants are being used in your home’s HVAC system, the impact it has on the environment, and what your alternatives are.
We’re also happy to perform an energy audit and walk you through the benefits of energy-saving products like programmable thermostats. We can also talk you through the pros and cons of switching from oil heat to natural gas to further reduce your HVAC systems’ impact on the environment.
3. Improve Your Home’s Safety
Preventative maintenance can also keep your home much safer. For instance, if your heat stops working while you’re traveling for the holidays, your pipes can freeze and burst, causing horrific water damage.
Carbon monoxide is another winter worry–the colorless, odorless gas can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, and death. Our HVAC maintenance plans check carbon monoxide levels and ensure that your equipment is working properly. You should also consider installing a carbon monoxide detector–especially if you have gas heating.
4. Save Money
Preventative maintenance can save you big money in the long run. Here are a few ways that annual HVAC maintenance can benefit your bottom line:
- Prevent costly breakdowns and repairs
- Reduce energy bills
- Extend the life of your system
- Stay protected under warranty (many manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance when you file a claim)
Regular maintenance can reduce the risk of a major problem with your HVAC system by 95%. That’s an astronomical number in terms of savings.
