If you have a warranty on your heating and air conditioning, consider getting an annual maintenance plan. This will not only protect the life of your units, but it may affect the validity of your warranty. Let’s take a closer look at how maintenance plans impact HVAC warranties.
What’s Included in an HVAC Maintenance Agreement?
The specific conditions of your HVAC maintenance plan will depend on the type of system you have. In general, the agreement will include a complete system inspection – everything from the interior air handler to the exterior AC unit. If there are any parts that need to be repaired or replaced, the technician will make that recommendation. Maintenance will also include checking the refrigerant, cleaning the coils, examining heating elements, and other services.
There are maintenance plans available for furnaces, boilers, air conditioners, and other HVAC components. You can select a maintenance plan for one area of your HVAC system, or you can get a comprehensive maintenance agreement. Our knowledgeable agents at Quality Comfort HVAC would be happy to go over the options with you.
Why Maintenance Plans Are Important for HVAC Warranties
Almost all HVAC warranties require annual maintenance plans in order to remain active. For instance, let’s say you have a new AC unit installed, and it comes with a 10-year warranty. The warranty company may require you to get a maintenance agreement with a certified HVAC repair company, like Quality Comfort HVAC. If you do not have this maintenance plan, future repairs may not be covered under your warranty.
The warranty companies do this to protect themselves and their customers. With an annual maintenance plans, you can catch potential issues early on. Rather than replacing multiple parts in your system, you may only need a minor adjustment. Maintenance agreements also give you peace of mind that your HVAC system is working properly, just like what you’d experience with a bumper-to-bumper car warranty.
When Should I Get a Maintenance Agreement?
The sooner, the better. HVAC repairs do not go away on their own. If you have an issue with your heating or air conditioning, it’s important to act fast. Getting a maintenance plan now will ensure that your system operates at maximum efficiency.
