Preventative Maintenance Programs: A Win-Win Arrangement
How often do you have the oil changed in your car? How frequently do you get your tires rotated? If you’re like most people, you have good intentions and do your best to maintain upkeep on your vehicle. Still, you probably drop the ball on your car’s maintenance every now and then. The chances of this occurring go up if you get busier or life becomes more demanding and stressful. However, this doesn’t negate the fact that your car still requires maintenance. If you don’t keep your vehicle properly maintained, the likelihood of it breaking down will increase dramatically. This results in costly repairs and inconvenience.
Just like cars, the heating and cooling systems in your home require upkeep to prevent bigger problems down the road. If you own a house, chances are that you also own a furnace or an air conditioner. If you live in Putnam County, you most certainly own a furnace and very likely own an air conditioning unit, as well. Both air conditioners and heaters require monthly service during months of constant use. Most homeowners will replace a filter and clean their appliances at the start of the summer and winter months, but then life happens, people get busy with other things, and the “maintenance ball” is dropped the next month.
One option to consider is “preventative maintenance.” This is an agreement between a homeowner and their Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) contractors that essentially eliminates the chances that much-needed upkeep on your appliances will be missed. The air conditioning contractors visit your Putnam County home on a regular basis and perform maintenance on your furnace and air conditioning units. Both the homeowner and the technician benefit from this arrangement. Routine maintenance of your household appliances will prevent system failures and reduce normal wear and tear. Furthermore, regular service and checkups will ensure that your units are performing at optimum efficiency. Your heating and air conditioning contractors will have a better understanding of your appliance and its history and regular maintenance will reduce problems encountered later on down the road.
Finally, the heating and air conditioning contractors you hire to service and maintain your unit and furnace are professionals. They have many years of experience in their field and are intimately familiar with household appliances like yours, as well as Putnam County climate and elements and how they can wear on your systems. A preventative maintenance agreement eliminates “user error” that can often result when a well-meaning but sometimes misinformed homeowner attempts to perform maintenance or troubleshooting on his household appliances. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
