Being a homeowner or business owner is tough work. In addition to your normal duties as a student, employee, or parent (or all three), you are responsible for the care and maintenance of an entire building. A major part of any building or home in Texas is the HVAC system.
HVAC systems are often hidden away in a closet or attic, so it’s easy to forget about this essential part of your home. Seasons change, life gets in the way, the cool setting changes to heat, and your air conditioner keeps chugging along. Before you know it, it may have been years since you last thought about tuning up your HVAC system. This is where the professionals at Lex Air Conditioning and Heating can help. Our HVAC maintenance plan can help you rest easy knowing that your HVAC system is performing as it should all year long.
So what is an HVAC maintenance plan, and what does it include? Read on below and we’ll answer your most pressing questions. If you have other questions about the services we provide, call us today at (972) 217-8955.
Why is Preventive HVAC Maintenance Important?
Heating and cooling systems have many moving parts that help keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year. Just like your car needs regular oil changes and tune-ups, your air conditioning system needs regular HVAC maintenance. Annual preventative maintenance has many benefits for your air conditioning system. A well-maintained HVAC system will:
- Need fewer repairs
- Last longer
- Use energy more efficiently
- Provide a better flow of warm or cool air in your home
- Provide better indoor air quality
Most HVAC systems have a lifespan of 10-15 years, but this estimate includes the assumption of regular maintenance. Without routine maintenance, it’s more likely that a small issue could go unnoticed and turn into a major emergency repair. With regular maintenance, you can trust that your system gets a full inspection every year to catch any issues that could turn into a headache later on. Preventative maintenance also makes sure your system is running efficiently.
Air conditioners run almost nonstop through the Texas summer (which usually lasts around 9 months). This massive energy consumption can lead to high utility bills and lead to extra pain in your wallet. Regular maintenance can ensure your system is using only the energy it needs to keep your home comfortable.
What is an Annual HVAC Maintenance Program?
HVAC maintenance plans are a way for local businesses like Lex Air to handle maintenance tasks for you. We know the importance of keeping your home or business at a comfortable temperature with a system that meets all of your needs. As a homeowner, you should be able to relax and find comfort in your home. Unfortunately, owning a home or business can feel like a never-ending project. The list of regular maintenance tasks for your home can go on and on. An annual maintenance program can give you peace of mind knowing that your home’s most important systems are getting the care and attention they need. That’s why we’ve created the Cool Club Maintenance Program. Read on to learn more about our professional maintenance plans.
