HVAC maintenance agreements are very important for many reasons. The main reason is for your peace of mind. If your heating and air conditioning unit stops working on the coldest or hottest day of the year you will be very uncomfortable. Maintenance is a good way to ward off inconvenient break downs as your Nashville HVAC technician will check your system thoroughly and could possible find a problem before it becomes a reality.
Besides multipoint inspections to locate worn and torn parts, the best maintenance agreements include outdoor coil cleanings (specifically ask because not all agreements include this). Regular cleanings will help maintain the cleanliness of your A/C coils and optimize your cooling efficiency. Your air conditioning system loses efficiency with dirty coils. Dirty coils make it harder for the unit to dissipate heat from the outdoor coil. A/C units can breakdown with severe buildup on outdoor coils. You can avoid this by having your cooling system serviced before the dead of the summer.
Recently the HVAC manufacturers have added a clause to the warranty information stating that you must have routine maintenance in order to validate your warranty. This means that if an air conditioning technician has to replace a part, the manufacturer could request a copy of your maintenance invoices before they will warranty the part. The same is true for labor warranties or extended service agreements given with a new heating and cooling system installation.
Check with your local HVAC company, some companies offer a discount on repairs to customers who have a maintenance contract. In Nashville, TN, Temp Control LLC offers a 15% discount to maintenance agreement customers. Maintenance agreements covering heating and cooling checkups may be less expensive than purchasing 2 separate maintenance visits.
