Benefits of Choosing an HVAC Maintenance Program

If you are a homeowner, you know just how many maintenance tasks there are around your property that you need to keep on top of. Some of these are things you might handle by yourself, but others, such as HVAC maintenance, need the help of a qualified expert! You should have your HVAC unit serviced at least twice each year to keep it running efficiently all year round. However, if it has been a while since you had someone give your HVAC a once over, then don’t worry; you are not alone! This is one of the maintenance tasks that homeowners most often forget about. However, if you choose to enroll in an HVAC maintenance program like our GENTCare Comfort Club®, it makes it much easier to keep track of your service visits! Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of having the correct HVAC maintenance program in place.

Regular Maintenance

With GENTCare Comfort Club®, you get two complete HVAC maintenance visits every year. This will include a complete tune-up for your HVAC system, priority scheduling, and a 10% discount on any necessary parts and equipment. When you know that you have access to these twice-yearly tune-ups, you will be more likely to schedule those appointments instead of putting it off for another month or two to avoid paying out an additional expense! With your HVAC maintenance plan, your service calls are already covered by your plan.

Extend the Lifespan of Your HVAC

One of the main reasons we encourage homeowners to have an HVAC maintenance visit at least twice per year is that servicing your unit regularly goes a long way towards extending how long your HVAC system will last. When HVAC maintenance is neglected, the components need to work harder to heat or cool your home causing them to burn out much faster than they usually would. When cared for properly, with regular servicing by a trained HVAC technician, your unit should last between 15 and 20 years.

Well Maintained HVAC Units Are More Efficient

One of the most common reasons why homeowners delay HVAC maintenance is that they are trying to save money. However, this is a false economy! A well-maintained HVAC system is going to be far more energy efficient, saving you money in the long run by reducing your energy bills. As previously mentioned, it will also extend the life of the unit, meaning you have longer to save for a replacement! You can also save money on repairs. Not only does the GENTCare Comfort Club® offer you a discount on parts and equipment, but when you have regular servicing, the technician may be able to spot minor problems and fix them before they grow into larger, more expensive repairs.

Avoid Unexpected Breakdowns

Have you ever found yourself in the position where it is sweltering hot - or bone-chillingly cold - only for the HVAC to break down at the worst possible time? There is no way to eliminate these unexpected breakdowns completely, but what if you could do something to minimize the risk of this happening to you? When you commit to having regular HVAC maintenance, you will minimize the chances of unexpected breakdowns. During those regular tune-ups, your technician can point out anything that looks like it could be getting worn out and suggest preventative maintenance to stop it from breaking. Minor repairs are inexpensive and easier to complete. Still, when left to worsen, they can quickly escalate into expensive repairs, so it is best practice to handle these minor issues when your next maintenance tune-up rolls around.
