When I was really busy and forgetful, I used to have my local HVAC business come out every month for HVAC maintenance and a change of the air filter. I purposely got this HVAC plan, because I know if I didn’t, I would completely forget. The heating and cooling plan was incredibly helpful all throughout college and when I was working my first job. After that, after things had stabilized and I had a little bit more time to myself, I didn’t have as much need for monthly HVAC assistance. I decided to let my HVAC plan run out, but before then, I watched how the HVAC specialists would perform basic maintenance, and how they would change out the A/C filters. Then I started doing all of the same things they did, with the help of a few educational videos online. After that, I realized how easily it was to actually perform HVAC maintenance, and how much money I could save by doing it myself. Since them, I have performed monthly HVAC filter changes, and yearly maintenance on my heater and A/C. I guess I owe it though to my HVAC plan originally, because without that I would have never remembered myself when I was busy, and I would have probably neglected my HVAC unit, and probably have a costly HVAC repair bill heading my way. I suggest that if you don’t have much time for your heating and air conditioning, that you get a HVAC plan like I did. However, if you have extra time, you should try to learn how to do maintenance yourself, it will save you a lot of money in the long run.
