FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What is a tune-up?
A: A tune-up is when an HVAC professional checks the key components of your system and makes adjustments to the system to keep it operating efficiently.
Q: I have an extended warranty on my HVAC system. Are tune-ups covered by my extended warranty?
A: No. Extended warranties and extended service agreements do not cover the cost of regular maintenance of your system. Tune-ups are considered regular maintenance and are required by most manufacturers for your warranty to remain in effect.
Q: When do I need to have my unit serviced?
A: You should have a regular tune-up twice a year -- typically at the beginning of each heating and cooling season -- to ensure that your system is working efficiently before the weather gets too hot or cold. However, tune-ups may be scheduled at any time.
Q: Are seasonal maintenance plans worth the investment?
A: You should get a tune-up to ensure your HVAC system is ready for the season. By spending a little twice a year, you can save a lot in energy bills by keeping your system operating at peak efficiency. You also can avoid costly repairs by identifying and fixing minor problems before they turn into big ones. Plus, many homeowners don’t realize that their manufacturer warranties may be considered invalid if they aren’t getting their unit serviced twice a year.
