The big item on an HVAC maintenance contract is annual tune-ups, or air conditioner and heater service. Depending on the agreement you choose, you’ll also get discounts on parts and repairs, 24/7 emergency service, and more.
The idea behind a maintenance plan is to keep both your repair costs and your energy bills down while making your home more comfortable when your HVAC system is running. With preventative maintenance, your heating and cooling system stays in great shape, which means it works better and uses less energy.
Just about every HVAC company offers some maintenance plans. Here at Air Comfort Technologies, we offer three different packages with add-on options. This way, you can get the exact services you need for your air conditioner, heat pump, furnace, or any other HVAC units you have.
We’ll talk a little more about our options a little here and how they’ll save you money even in just a little bit of time. We’ll also go over the benefits of regular maintenance. Or, you can click here to go directly to our service page to find the package that suits you best.

Benefits Of Regular Heater Maintenance
With heater maintenance or an annual tune-up, we send an HVAC technician to check dozens of items on your furnace. It includes changing the air filter, checking all the electrical components and moving parts, including the blower motor, cleaning out the system, and replacing any worn or broken parts. The benefits include:
Lower Gas And Electric Bills
Better Comfort All Winter
Less Chance Of Breakdown
Your Home Is Safer
Lower Gas And Electric Bills
Simply put, an HVAC system that’s in great shape requires less energy to run. That means you use less gas or electricity to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Similar to the energy efficiency benefits, your air conditioning or heater will do a better job when it’s tuned up and optimized. In particular, you get better air circulation for better treatment in each room.
Less Chance Of A Breakdown
When parts inside your heating and cooling system get worn out, they’re bound to break sooner rather than later. And, that sooner will be on the hottest or coldest days of the year. In other words, when the unit is working its hardest.
Overall, you get more years out of a system that’s been properly maintained by professionals. It’s like a car or any other appliance: The more care you give it, the longer it lasts. The additional advantage is that you’ll keep your warranties valid. Check the fine print: Most HVAC warranties say you must get professional service, or you void the warranty.
Your Home Is Safer
Finally, your home is safer when you’re sure your HVAC units — especially your heater — are working correctly. With natural gas or any combustible furnace, there’s always the chance of a carbon monoxide leak. If you don’t catch it early, it can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which is deadly.
Fortunately, we all have CO detectors in our homes now. And, with regular professional maintenance, you’ll have someone checking your levels at least once a year to make sure there’s not a problem.

Is An HVAC Maintenance Agreement Worth It?
An HVAC maintenance agreement is worth it because you’ll save more money than you spend over time. When you factor in the discounts on service and repairs, plus a few extra years before buying a new heater or AC, those savings far outweigh the small monthly charge. But, the biggest, up-front savings come with the tune-ups. With most packages, that maintenance pays for itself.
Usually, a tune-up costs around $100 in the fall for your heater and then another $100 for your AC. Those are included with the plan. So, you’re either getting other services for free or for a steep discount when you add it all up.
