Your heating and air conditioning system is just like your car. It has a lot of moving parts and it runs for hundreds of hours per year. With this type of use, it’s simply impossible to completely prevent all problems. However, just like with your car, regular maintenance can keep your HVAC system in top shape for as long as possible. Here are five reasons you don’t want to be without a HVAC maintenance service agreement:
- Scheduling – One of the biggest benefits of a HVAC maintenance service agreement is that work is scheduled in advance. With advance scheduling, you can select a date for routine maintenance when the kids will be out of school or you’ll be home from work to avoid burning vacation days. You’ll also likely receive priority scheduling if you ever do need a sudden repair.
- Routine checkups – Cleaning, checkups and basic maintenance are included in your plan. If you don’t have a plan, you probably aren’t having your HVAC system regularly checked. This is a mistake, since small problems can make themselves more expensive over time by putting a strain on the rest of your system.
- Discounts – Because you sign up for service in advance, you receive a discounted rate on each checkup. In addition, if repairs that aren’t covered by the agreement are needed, there’s often a discount for plan members.
- Service you can trust – One of the hardest parts about choosing an HVAC contractor is knowing whether you can trust them. Even if they have great reviews, you may feel they have an incentive to overcharge you or perform unneeded work. When you have a service agreement, you know your long-term satisfaction is the contractor’s first priority.
- Lower utility bills – Small problems such as dirty air filters or parts needing replacement can increase your utility bills by several percent. When you’re paying hundreds or thousands of dollars a year in cooling and heating costs, these savings are not insignificant.
