HVAC Preventive Maintenance Agreements

Most people tend to take their HVAC systems for granted and only pay attention to them when a problem occurs – usually, by this time it is far too late to solve the problem, and major repairs – or even replacement becomes paramount.

As the wise saying goes “a stitch in time saves nine.” In this particular case, making a preventive maintenance agreement would go a long way to prevent such situations from happening in the first place.

A preventive maintenance agreement (PMA) is a specialized document which includes the detailed plan of regular maintenance of an HVAC system. On a basic level, this includes the process of the technician making their visit and running an audit to see if the HVAC system is functioning perfectly, have good controls, flawless mechanical systems and create the least possible carbon footprint while working at the highest possible level of efficiency.

While it might seem pretty miniscule, a preventive maintenance agreement can serve as a very helpful tool. First and foremost, the technician-run regular checks they mandate can find problems before they get the chance to become big and need anything big.

Secondly, they mandate regular cleaning – and in many cases replacement of coils and filters, which ensures uniformly good air quality throughout the lifetime of the HVAC. Be it your home or office, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your family members and employees are living healthy in a safe environment.

Thirdly, the regular inspection and cleaning will automatically make your HVAC last longer, prevent surprise downtime issues, and have the system work properly throughout its life.

Last but not least, it will allow you to save when it comes to your power bills. Regular cleaning and monitoring mean your HVAC will run almost (if not fully) good as new – and the lesser depreciation will not burden your electricity consumption.

So, these are the key advantages of having a PMA for your HVAC system. Through regular inspections and cleaning, issues can be caught and corrected in the earliest of stages – which makes for cleaner air, better efficiency, consistent power consumption, and better longevity. Most of all, this will give you the ability to have the satisfaction of a good system.
