HVAC System Maintenance

Why you should perform annual maintenance on your HVAC system

While every manufacturer's warranty is different, generally speaking they do share some similarities.  First, since manufacturers cannot control how their equipment is installed, you will not ever see a combined parts and labor warranty that extends for the life of the unit. Typically warranties offered by the manufacturer will only cover parts, and are only honored if a licensed HVAC contractor has determined the part's failure was caused by a manufacturer defect.  This means if your unit is not installed correctly, or not serviced by a professional, you warranty can be void.  
Additionally, parts warranties typically only cover major elements and do not cover air filters, fan belts, lubrication, electrical wiring or other similar components. 
Homeowners are expected to assume responsibility for the maintenance of these parts on their own.  If the system fails due to lack of upkeep, again your manufacturer warranty will be void.  Certain expert HVAC contractors offer extended parts and labor warranties.  When combined with the original manufacturer warranty, homeowners can see a great deal in long-term savings and enjoy many other benefits.Annual MaintenanceAnnual HVAC maintenance is important to catch potential problems early, maintain efficient operation and extend the life of systems. Annual preventive maintenance is a common requirement to keep a warranty valid.If you have a service contract, you will be more likely to get an annual tune-up for your HVAC system. This will improve your energy efficiency, as the technician will be able to change dirty filters and spot other problems that are impacting your efficiency, helping your system to work more affordably overall.Having a qualified technician inspect your system a few times per year means you can identify issues while they are still small and easy to fix, rather than waiting until they damage your system or become expensive.However, some manufacturers require routine maintenance as a term of the warranty.
