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 hard in the background, heating, cooling, controlling the humidity and filtering your indoor air. Many homeowners take these features for granted until they have to do without them. If your air conditioning has ever stopped working on a sweltering summer day, or the furnace can't generate enough heat during a blizzard, you can understand what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner wants to deal with last minute repairs, high energy bills or home comfort problems. What if there was a way to guarantee an uninterrupted source of clean, climate controlled air when you want it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in. 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 the most from each maintenance visit, you should think about enrolling in an HVAC maintenance contract.

This plan is an arrangement between you and an HVAC contractor. Membership takes the guesswork out of HVAC service by providing routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled service calls and other advantages. An HVAC maintenance contract is not required to ask for tune-ups with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, but we highly recommend enrolling. Here are six reasons why.

1. Automatic Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busier, so people often forget about scheduling furnace maintenance for the fall and air conditioning maintenance before the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll get friendly reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re not sure why HVAC maintenance is so important, take a look at these benefits:

  • Reveal minor problems early: Issues with your home comfort system tend to progress little by little. When a technician examines the internal components annually, it’s possible to find and take care of little problems before they become big headaches.
  • Reduce the risk of unexpected shutdowns: By fixing that loose fan belt and balancing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance visit, the risk of a sudden breakdown diminishes.
  • Saving on repair costs: Planned HVAC maintenance is an affordable, expected cost that eliminates the need for numerous major repairs.
  • Improve energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that yearly maintenance can boost HVAC efficiency by as high as 30%, lowering your heating and cooling bills at the same time.
  • Encourage home comfort: When your heating and cooling system functions the way it should, airflow improves for even temperatures and more manageable humidity in every room.
  • Prolong 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 equipment.
  • Provide safety: An equipment and safety evaluation during every visit grants peace of mind that your heating and cooling system is working like it's supposed to.
  • Maintain your warranty: The bulk of HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance so much that they require once-a-year tune-ups to keep your warranty active. Investing a little in maintenance now protects you from expensive repairs that your warranty will cover.

2. Priority Service

Having an HVAC maintenance agreement puts you at the front of the line when you call to request an emergency repair. You can often expect same-day service—even for 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 maintenance plan gives you access to the most rapid installs possible, even during the busiest weeks.

4. Discounted Repairs and Services

Regular maintenance reduces the need for repair service, but if your system needs some TLC, having an HVAC maintenance agreement entitles you to a 15% discount. You’ll also receive 15% off indoor air quality products, such as pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.

5. No Trip Charge

Heating and cooling repairs are sometimes necessary, but they can get costly fast. Fortunately, with an HVAC agreement, you’ll never have to pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour appointments.

6. Repair Guarantee

How can you know the technician has executed a job well done? Put your mind at ease with a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all repairs and installations for one year. If the final product leave you dissatisfied, your technician will return to set things right.
