HVAC maintenance covers a lot of ground and ensures your home is properly heated in the winter and properly cooled in the summer.

What Does HVAC Maintenance Cost? Plus, What You Should Know Before You Schedule an Appointment

Ok, so we’ve established that regular HVAC maintenance is vital to your home’s long-term health. Let’s say we’ve sold you on the idea; now, you might be asking “what does HVAC maintenance cost?” And it’s a great question.

The truth is that many home services companies charge an arm, a leg, and maybe another limb to show up in a timely manner and do a good job. That’s just not what we believe in at Uncle Mike’s Home Service. 

No one knows HVAC like our team of trusted professionals. No one has seen and done it all like our crew. And quite frankly, one of the reasons we’re committed to fair and honest pricing is because we’ve been on the receiving end of HVAC maintenance price gouging. It’s not fun. 

Here’s what you can expect from Uncle Mike’s Home Service when we conduct HVAC maintenance at your home, from checkups to pricing and more.

The basics of HVAC maintenance and why it’s important

HVAC maintenance covers a lot of ground and ensures your home is properly heated in the winter and properly cooled in the summer.

In a nutshell, HVAC maintenance covers a lot of ground and ensures your home is properly heated in the winter and properly cooled in the summer. You don’t want to get into the warmer months with faulty air conditioning – nor do you want a broken furnace or heat pump when the temperatures start to drop.

Most HVAC systems come with a maintenance package and that’s no different with Uncle Mike’s Home Service. We’re writing this blog, however, because a lot of homeowners either delay getting maintenance or they don’t make an appointment at all.

And what happens when you don’t have HVAC maintenance? You end up with a big (and expensive) problem on your hands. No one wants that.

Thorough inspection of your HVAC system

When the Uncle Mike’s Home Service truck rolls up to your home, you can rest assured that our technicians will leave no stone unturned. We conduct a tip-to-tail inspection of your home’s HVAC system, including filtration, ventilation, parts and more.

Precision tune-up of your entire system

Just like a car, your home’s HVAC system needs a tune-up from time to time. A tune-up ensures that your system is operating as efficiently as possible so that no matter the season, you won’t have to worry about any HVAC issues.

Improved energy efficiency

HVAC systems that operate efficiently are also good for your energy bill. If your HVAC has to work extra hard to do its job, it will use significantly more power than a system that is well maintained. That’s another reason why scheduling your HVAC maintenance sooner than later is important.

Better indoor air quality

Healthier, cleaner indoor air is a byproduct of a quality HVAC system that has been regularly maintained. When air is filtered in and out through your system, the quality of that air improves.

Detect problems before they’re bigger problems

Like we mentioned above, HVAC repairs that become an emergency are the most expensive repairs. Scheduling maintenance well in advance and taking care of it before the seasons change (we recommend maintenance in the spring and fall) means you’re at a much lower risk of HVAC problems.

How much does HVAC maintenance typically cost?

In most cases, a general rate for HVAC maintenance (i.e., your annual checkup appointment for the system) is between $75-200. That number can substantially increase if emergency repairs are needed, or if your HVAC technician spots a problem that needs to be addressed sooner than later.

Reminder: repairs now will cost far less than emergency repairs later.

The cost of maintenance will also depend on which type of unit you’re working with. Here are some of the most common styles of HVAC systems.

  • Hybrid split unit
  • Heat pump
  • Split or mini-split unit
  • Heating/air packaged system

Depending on the makeup and style of your HVAC system, the cost for maintenance will vary slightly. At Uncle Mike’s Home Service, we try to keep pricing consistent but older units are typically more expensive to repair and/or maintain. 

Newer units with modern technology come with parts that are more readily available in the event of a repair, and their design makes maintenance easier and more routine for our technicians. If you’re unsure about the age or condition of your home’s HVAC system, give us a call and we can inspect it before maintenance is scheduled.
