Preventive maintenance for HVAC systems is important to ensure your equipment is running smoothly and efficiently. Preventative maintenance prevents equipment failure and costly repairs before they happen. Maintaining a HVAC system is similar to maintaining a car. Oil changes and tune-ups are necessary for the vehicle to run smoothly and can save you thousands in the long run. Proper annual maintenance for an HVAC system is similar.

Benefits of preventative maintenance include:

  • Improved efficiency – many systems lose 5% efficiency a year, and annual tune-ups can make up this loss, meaning your energy bills are lower.
  • Identification of broken parts – regular maintenance helps identify worn our or faulty parts to be repaired or replaced before they affect other parts of the system.
  • Longevity of the system and avoiding problems. Maintenance reduces the potential of a breakdown by up to 95%. Most systems last around 14 years; maintenance ensures the system lasts as long as possible.

It’s easy to let maintenance fall by the wayside when life and other things get in the way. A preventative maintenance plan provides timely service. Altman’s Cooling and Heating offers three unique yearly maintenance agreement plans, also called the Savings Care Plan.
