From reducing costs, maintaining your home, and taking to-dos off your list, annual HVAC maintenance plans are one of the most helpful subscription plans you can have.
Let’s face it, the only time you probably think twice about your home’s HVAC system is when it isn’t functioning the way it should. One of the best ways to avoid system malfunctions and emergency repairs is with regular maintenance and servicing. But, it can be hard to keep on top of annual service appointments…
One way homeowners protect their HVAC systems is with an annual maintenance plan. These memberships can help keep your system in good condition and alleviate the stress of remembering to keep up with routine service appointments.
Benefits Of Annual HVAC Maintenance
Performing annual maintenance throughout the year can help extend the life of your system, protect your warranty, and prevent you from running into a costly surprise repair.
Annual checklists can be lengthy and change with the season. HVAC maintenance checklists include simple tasks like changing and replacing filters to more technical items like checking the electrical systems, lubricating internal parts, and checking for leaks.
Performing regular maintenance can:
- Cut your energy bills
- Extend the life of your system
- Maintain your system’s warranty
- Keep your home safe
- Improve indoor air quality
- Improve your comfort
- Give you peace of mind
With all the added benefits of regular maintenance, it’s surprising that many homeowners forego bi-annual service appointments.
Why Choose A Maintenance Plan?
Prevention is often cheaper than repair or replacement. The average cost of an HVAC repair visit is around $144-$451 (depending on the age and specs of your system) while the cost of a new system can be as high as $12,000 or more.
For some, the added convenience of knowing their system will be serviced regularly without much effort is worth the small monthly fee. The key benefit of an annual maintenance plan is the assurance that your system is serviced regularly, which can alert you to potential issues helping to avoid costly breakdowns or repairs sneaking up on you.
Regular maintenance will also improve system efficiency. In fact, according to the DOE, regular maintenance keeps your system running at peak efficiency, which can help you save as much as 30% on your energy bills.

Is A Maintenance Plan Right For You?
Climate control is a necessity for keeping your home and family comfortable. Taking care of your HVAC system is critical-especially in variable climates like the Midwest. While some homeowners have no trouble keeping up on service calls and routine maintenance, some may choose a more carefree approach with a membership plan from their local provider.
Here are a few things to consider before signing up for a maintenance plan:
- Is your system still under a manufacturer’s warranty?
- What are your specific system model’s most common repairs or issues?
- What are the average repair costs of your system?
- Will the contract cost more than the average repairs or service visits?
- Does your local provider offer plans that fit within your budget?
