Maintenance Plan

Dodd Air Conditioning Preventative Maintenance Plan

If you’re like most homeowners, your home is probably your most valuable asset. That’s why you should do everything possible to protect your investment. Maintenance is an important aspect of owning a home to preserve and enhance its market value. Without regular maintenance, HVAC systems simply can’t deliver the high level of comfort that you want for your family. Properly maintaining your heating and cooling systems is essential to keep your equipment in good working condition for years to come.

Studies show HVAC systems receiving routine maintenance are healthier, more efficient and last on average 18% longer. 90% of system failure is caused by dirt and dust. Regular maintenance will spot minor issues and make certain that the unit is running efficiently as possible.
