The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract
Your HVAC system is essential to home comfort and high air quality. The furnace and air conditioner work tirelessly in the background, heating, cooling, managing the humidity and filtering your indoor air. Lots of homeowners take these features for granted until they have to do without them. If your AC has ever malfunctioned on a scorching summer day, or the furnace can’t generate enough heat during a blizzard, you know what this is like firsthand.
No homeowner wishes to deal with last minute repairs, high energy bills or problems with their sense of comfort. What if you could guarantee a continuous supply of clean, conditioned air when you want it most?
That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes into play. Like obtaining an oil change for your car, routine tune-ups are vital for keeping your HVAC system running at its best. And to get every benefit from each maintenance visit, you should consider applying for an HVAC maintenance contract.
This plan is an arrangement between you and an HVAC contractor. Participation takes the guesswork out of HVAC service by supplying routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled visits and other advantages. An HVAC maintenance contract isn’t mandatory to request tune-ups with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, but we highly recommend registering. Here are six reasons why.
1. Automatic Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Life gets hectic, so people often forget about requesting furnace maintenance in the fall and air conditioning maintenance before the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll be sent consistent reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unfamiliar with why HVAC maintenance is so important, check out these benefits:
- Expose minor problems early: Issues with your heating and cooling often form slowly. When a technician checks the internal components once a year, it’s possible to pinpoint and resolve little problems before they turn into big headaches.
- Lower the risk of equipment failures: By tightening that loose fan belt and evening out the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance appointment, the likelihood of an unexpected breakdown goes down.
- Saving on repair costs: Scheduled HVAC maintenance is an affordable, foreseeable amount that reduces the need for many major repairs.
- Enhance energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that yearly maintenance can enhance HVAC efficiency by close to 30%, reducing your heating and cooling bills in the process.
- Encourage home comfort: When your home comfort system performs the way it should, airflow improves for consistent temperatures and more manageable humidity throughout the house.
- Extend the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can last years longer compared to a neglected one, saving you on untimely replacement costs.
- Ensure safety: An equipment and safety evaluation during each visit grants peace of mind that your heating and cooling system is performing safely.
- Protect your warranty: Most HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance so much that they demand yearly tune-ups to keep your warranty active. Investing a little in maintenance now safeguards you from pricey repairs that your warranty will cover.
2. Priority Service
Having an HVAC maintenance contract puts you at the front of the line when you request an emergency repair. You can often expect same-day service—even during nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members.
3. Priority Install
Thinking about replacing your HVAC system? An HVAC contract gives you access to the most rapid installs available, even during the busiest weeks.
4. Marked Down Repairs and Services
Regular maintenance decreases the need for repair work, but if your system needs some TLC, having an HVAC maintenance agreement entitles you to a 15% discount. You’ll also enjoy 15% off indoor air quality products, like pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.
5. No Trip Charge
Utility repairs are sometimes necessary, but they can get costly fast. Luckily, with an HVAC agreement, you’ll never be expected to pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour appointments.
6. Repair Guarantee
How can you know the technician has performed a job well done? Put your mind at ease with a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all repairs and installations for one year. If the results leave you dissatisfied, your technician will return to set things right.
