Maintenance Program in Bellevue, WA

Heating and air conditioning specialists need to have the skills and experience to handle all kinds of repair issues, especially in towns like Bellevue, WA where the weather can be extreme and unpredictable. Oftentimes, our HVAC systems are the best means of keeping our homes comfortable even when the temperatures outside go to extremes.

But there’s more to keeping those systems functioning than simply calling a repair technician when things go wrong. Ideally, you want to stop any issues before they get that far, which means setting up a maintenance program with the friendly technicians at S&L Mechanical Heating and Cooling to help. We provide quality maintenance sessions for a wide variety of HVAC systems, ensuring that your Bellevue, WA home never encounters any nasty surprises. We treat every customer like they’re our only customer, so call us today!

What Is a Maintenance Session?

A maintenance session most closely resembles a tune–up on your car. The technician arrives at your home at the appointed time and gives the system a thorough look: including running the system for 15–20 minutes. If any problems are detected, the technician can note them. In the case of small problems, like loose bolts or fittings, the issue can be resolved as part of the maintenance session itself.

If larger problems are found, the technician can schedule a more formal repair session. But that can take place at a time convenient to the homeowner, or even immediately after the maintenance session in many cases (provided the needed equipment is in the van, and it almost always is).

What Benefits Does That Provide?

Maintenance sessions provide two specific benefits to your home:

  1. By correcting all those little issues, maintenance sessions help your system perform more effectively. That, in turn, allows it to do its job without using quite so much energy: lowering strain and reducing the monthly cost of running it.
  2. In the event larger repairs are needed, maintenance sessions give you an early jump on the problem. Not only does that allow you to fix it at your leisure, instead of scrambling to rearrange your schedule in the face of an unexpected breakdown, but it usually reduces the cost of the repairs since the damage hasn’t had as much time to spread.

Regular Sessions Improve Longevity

Over and above the immediate benefits, maintenance sessions conducted once or twice a year on your system help cut down on wear and tear. That in turn will help your system last longer than it might otherwise, extending months or even years beyond the time you’d normally set it out to pasture. Considering how much a new system costs, the more use you can get out of your existing one the better.

At S&L Mechanical Heating and Cooling, we believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure, which is why we offer long–term maintenance plans that will keep your system running not only this season, but for many seasons to come. Contact our trained team today to set up an appointment. You’ll be glad you did!
