Estes Services offers affordable heating and cooling maintenance plans conducted by experienced, licensed professionals.  Understand the difference between reactive and proactive maintenance and start saving money now!

What is Reactive Maintenance?

Reactive maintenance focuses on restoring your heating and cooling system to its normal operating condition after a problem has occurred. Restoring a malfunctioning component, or a breakdown of your system requires scheduling service with a professional.

Reactive heating and cooling maintenance is more expensive and can occur at any time. A reactive maintenance strategy not only costs you more money on repairs, but you also have increased energy bills due to the system’s poor performance. Reactive maintenance only catches the problem after your heating and cooling system has wasted energy.

What is Proactive Maintenance?

Proactive maintenance means you take measures to keep your heating and cooling system healthy before a major issue arises. You can invest in an HVAC maintenance plan, which checks your system twice a year for major problems and regular tune-ups.

With our professionals checking your system consistently, we will catch problems before they happen and save you money in the long run. Heating and cooling maintenance plans will also detect when your system is too old and needs to be replaced.

Benefits of Proactive Maintenance:

The misconception that you are saving money by only calling your heating and cooling specialist when it fails is false. Investing in an HVAC maintenance plan allows you to save money several different ways. Money-saving benefits of preventive heating and cooling maintenance are:

  • Fewer emergency service calls
  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Extended lifespan of your HVAC unit
  • Prevents expensive breakdowns

Don’t wait for your heating and cooling system to break down before you decide to invest in an HVAC maintenance plan. Contact Estes Services today and talk to our professionals about what our maintenance plans can do for you!
