Regular tune-ups should be performed on your home HVAC equipment in order to maintain peak performance from the machine.
I have read that on a dozen different websites.
It must be true if I found it online. Even when the equipment is brand new, regular maintenance is extremely important. A couple of years ago, my wife and I bought a new heat pump and AC unit. It was time to upgrade the machine and we were looking at a huge repair bill. It didn’t make sense to spend $1500 on the AC repair when we could buy a new AC and heat pump for a few thousand dollars more. When we bought all of the new equipment, we signed up for a service contract. In the contract, we pay a low one time fee for a winter and spring tune-up. We also receive no fees for repair estimates and we get 10% off all parts and labor. It was a great deal for the 3 year plan and they rolled the cost into the loan for the HVAC machine. Last spring we had the first service tune-up. The certified tech was very thorough dn he gave us a list of everything that was done. He didn’t have any notes or problems, but there was a section for the guy to write down anything that might become an issue. Our machine still works great and I absolutely feel like we received a quality and affordable service from our service provider. We will absolutely continue to make regularly scheduled tune-up appointments even after our service contract is done.
