Maintenance agreements provide many benefits for homeowners. They can help HVAC users save money and ensure the heating and cooling system works reliably and effectively. One specific way regular HVAC maintenance helps is to increase its lifespan.

Here are three facts as to how maintenance agreements can lengthen the life of an HVAC system:

1. Regular Maintenance Checks the Moving Parts

The HVAC is an advanced system with many moving parts. This means parts will eventually wear out and fail. With regular maintenance, a trained HVAC professional can tell if a part or component is on the verge of failure. For example, during the inspection, two things the HVAC professional will check are the motors and fans of the air handler and compressor. They will make sure nothing impedes their smooth movement and add lubrication as necessary.

2. Electrical Inspections

Another area the HVAC professional will look at is the electrical connections. They will make sure the wires are in good shape and there is no risk of any electrical shorts that might damage the complex circuit boards of the HVAC unit. Preventing an electrical circuit board from burning out can drastically improve the life of your HVAC system.

3. Thermostat Calibration

Most HVAC owners don’t give their thermostat a second thought, so it’s often a neglected piece of the HVAC system. But with a maintenance agreement, the thermostat will receive a thorough look at least once per year. During this inspection, the HVAC professional will make sure it’s working well and has an accurate temperature sensor. This is important because if the calibration is off, it may lead to running the HVAC system harder and longer than necessary, which can reduce its life.
