You want your home to run as efficiently as possible, from the CFL lightbulbs in your lamps to your HVAC system. A preventive maintenance plan can help with the latter, whether your HVAC appliances are six months or six years old. Consider these six benefits of a preventive maintenance plan in Frisco, Texas.
Lubricating Moving Parts
Your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump consists of several moving parts. Over time, the lubrication begins to decrease, which creates friction inside the unit. Friction leads to unnecessary wear and tear, which can shorten your unit’s lifespan. Plus, your HVAC system might prove less energy-efficient as a result.
Each time we visit a Frisco home for preventive maintenance, we lubricate all moving parts. That way, your system can run smoothly and help you keep your energy bills low.
Cleaning HVAC Components
Just like any appliance, an HVAC system gets dirty. It cycles air through your home, pulling dust, dirt, debris, and allergens with it. Over time, dirt can build up inside your HVAC system and cause problems, such as inadequate airflow, uneven heating and cooling, and mechanical breakdowns. We clean our customers’ systems thoroughly during a preventive maintenance visit.
We’ll also let you know if we spot any potential problems, such as a malfunctioning part or corroded component. Catching mechanical problems early can vastly reduce your HVAC-related expenses. Plus, you’ll enjoy lower energy bills if you tend to repairs quickly instead of waiting for them to become major problems.
We also look at your ductwork when we visit for preventive maintenance. Tears in the ductwork material can result in heat loss and gain, which will increase your energy bills. Additionally, debris can build up inside the ductwork, especially in curves, which might result in poor airflow and reduced indoor air quality.
Because you can’t see inside your ductwork, you need a professional with the right equipment to inspect it. Our trained technicians know how to spot issues that could impact your energy usage, and they can recommend remediation steps if they discover a problem.
Checking Fasteners and Valves
A loose fastener or corroded valve can cause serious problems with your HVAC system. These problems arise in older units, for the most part, but they can plague any HVAC appliance. We test these items when we visit for preventive maintenance so you don’t have to deal with breakdowns later. We’ll also clean contacts if they look dirty so they continue to operate correctly.
Testing Power Levels
A preventive maintenance visit wouldn’t be complete without an inspection of all electrical components. We check wiring, circuit boards, electrical connections, heat sequencers, and more so you don’t have to worry about living without heat or air conditioning during a malfunction. We’ll also check amperage levels to make sure your unit doesn’t draw too much or too little power during operation.
You can schedule maintenance at any time, but we recommend our preventive maintenance plan. It’s a money-saving way to make sure your HVAC system gets the best service possible. We’ll visit twice a year — once to check your air-conditioning system and again to check your heating system. Plus, you’ll enjoy several perks that we offer our preventive maintenance plan members.
For one thing, you’ll get priority when it comes to scheduling. If you have an emergency, you’ll want us at your home as fast as possible. When you have a preventive maintenance plan, we move you to the front of the line any time you call.
We also give you a 10 percent discount on parts if you need us to replace an HVAC component. Plus, your plan will transfer to the new owners if you decide to sell your home. This can improve your property value and serve as a bargaining chip when negotiating with buyers.
