Roger The Plumber, a residential plumbing and HVAC services company, explains the benefits of creating a home maintenance plan for HVAC and plumbing systems.

The home’s HVAC and plumbing systems run 24/7 for years on end, delivering heat, cool, air, and water to household members. To keep the system running smoothly and efficiently, a home maintenance plan is key.

Roger The Plumber General Manager Hunter Hamilton says, “It doesn’t take much effort to look after the home’s plumbing and HVAC systems, but the benefits are more than worth it.” Simple steps like replacing the air filter and water filter, lubricating moving parts, checking for leaks and cracks in plumbing pipes, cleaning drain lines and pans, and inspecting fan motor, blowers, and blades can help homeowners avoid costly emergency repairs and enjoy peace of mind. 

Hamilton continues, “It’s important to note that maintenance will vary depending on the season. For example, during cooler months, homeowners should check for gas leaks and inspect the heat exchanger, heat pump, burner, and ignition system.” A well-maintained system is highly efficient, helping reduce energy costs and wear and tear.

“A simple planner or a mobile app can help homeowners keep track of maintenance and ensure everything gets done,” adds Hamilton. Apps like Centriq and HomeZada make home maintenance quick and easy.

For busy homeowners who don’t have the time to take care of maintenance themselves, Roger The Plumber offers comprehensive HVAC and plumbing maintenance services.  During a maintenance call, HVAC technicians and plumbers complete a thorough inspection of key system components and make the necessary adjustments. Homeowners can also take advantage of this time by asking for tips and repair recommendations.
