Is an HVAC maintenance plan really necessary? Any St. Louis homeowner has seen, and likely considered, ads from HVAC companies telling them of the importance of an annual maintenance plan in keeping their heating and cooling systems running and their home comfortable. You may be thinking, do I really need an HVAC maintenance plan? The answer is: yes and no. HVAC maintenance is absolutely necessary to ensure your system operates at peak efficiency and won’t suffer unexpected failures. That doesn’t mean you need a maintenance plan with a reputable HVAC contractor. However, most homeowners would likely benefit from an annual service plan instead of just paying a one-time maintenance fee twice a year. Read on to see how an HVAC maintenance plan in St. Louis can benefit you, then call SmartHouse at 314-648-3162 to talk over our service plan options or schedule your service today.

This decreases its efficiency (raising your monthly utility bills) and increases the likelihood that the system will experience failure on an especially hot or cold day. While we can’t guarantee you’ll experience a failure if you skip one year of maintenance, it’s a pretty safe bet that you will if you’ve ignored the health of your system for several years.
