Service Agreements

Benefits of Service Agreements

A service agreement is about more than service – it’s about prevention. Having your HVAC system on a regular maintenance schedule will return on the investment with lower repair costs, more efficient operation, and peace of mind.

Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure your heating and air conditioning systems perform efficiently and safety, year after year. Additional benefits include:

  • Priority service
  • Reducing risk of breakdowns
  • Improved comfort and reliability
  • Discount on heating and cooling repairs
  • Maintaining manufacturer warranties

Common Objections

Most homeowners think avoiding service agreements is a way to cut costs. But with a service contract, you’re more likely to get an annual tune-up for your HVAC system, and this not only improves energy efficiency, but allows the technician to inspect everything and spot potential issues and avoid inconvenient and costly breakdowns. It’s very likely regular maintenance will pay for itself in both lower repair costs and higher efficiency.

Age Makes a Difference

Newer systems: If your heating and cooling system is new and still under a manufacturer’s warranty, major repairs should be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. It’s important to note, however, that many manufacturers require routine maintenance as a condition of their warranty – without routine maintenance, you could be invalidating the warranty. Older systems: If your furnace or HVAC system is older, a good maintenance schedule can extend its lifespan and make it operate more efficiently.

The Bottom Line: All HVAC Equipment Requires Some Maintenance

Any heating and air conditioning system is a fairly complex structure involving several mechanical and electrical parts. Maintenance is necessary, and a regular check usually includes:

  • Checking the thermostat settings
  • Tightening all electrical connections
  • Lubricating all moving parts
  • Inspecting the condensate drain
  • Checking various system controls

Properly maintained, your system should last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. Contact us today if you’d like more information or to sign up for a service agreement. Let us save you money!
