One of the biggest benefits to home and business owners with busy lives is that you won’t have to rely on memory alone to get your spring and fall maintenance completed. Your maintenance service provider will call you to schedule the visits at the right time each year, before the threat of insufferable summer temps or cold winter nights make HVAC function a do or die scenario. So if keeping up with your appointments has been hard for you in the past, this is the right choice for you.
We all know that catching minor issues early during a tune-up means they tend to be less expensive and easier to deal with. However, sometimes major problems start suddenly and aren’t the result of going too long without proper maintenance. Fortunately, with many HVAC maintenance contracts, there are several potential benefits and perks that make repairs far less stressful. Keep an eye out for agreements that offer these benefits:
- Extended warranties on parts and labor for all repairs made
- Priority or 24-hour emergency repair service
- Discounts on repairs, maintenance, service fees, or future installations
Keeping Your HVAC Running Strong
Regular maintenance that occurs twice a year will mean increased efficiency and a much longer lifespan when compared with systems that do not receive frequent tune-ups. Your efficiently running system will result in lower energy costs and reduced wear and tear on components that are expensive to replace. With a maintenance contract, you’ll also have the peace of mind knowing that you can count on your HVAC unit to work during the dog days of summer and the coldest days of winter. Even in the event of a sudden breakdown, you’ll be first on the list to receive immediate repair, typically the same day.
Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Questions
You should know exactly what you are getting when you decide to sign a maintenance agreement with any company. Don’t be afraid to inquire about exclusions, unmentioned fees, and any perks or benefits promised to you. Some HVAC maintenance service providers even allow you to customize a contract to fit your needs and include other equipment you may have in your home such as humidifiers. Make sure you are getting your money’s worth and it is not only a bundled guarantee of two visits that are the same price without a contract. An HVAC maintenance agreement all but ensures your loyalty to the provider for the duration of the term and that is valuable. This is the reason why most agreements include discounts or other such perks. Make sure you keep a copy of your agreement on hand to know exactly what you are supposed to be receiving.
An HVAC maintenance agreement is beneficial to every home or business owner with an HVAC system. These expensive units need regular care to remain at full function and to reduce the likelihood of serious problems developing.
