The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract 

Your HVAC system is the key to a sense of comfort and indoor air quality. The furnace and air conditioner work around the clock in the background, heating, cooling, regulating the humidity and filtering your home’s indoor air. A lot of homeowners take this functionality for granted until they have to do without them. If your AC has ever malfunctioned on a blistering summer day, or the furnace has failed during a blizzard, you can understand what this is like firsthand. 

No homeowner wants to deal with urgent repairs, high energy bills or problems with their sense of comfort. What if there was a way to maintain a continuous supply of clean, conditioned air when you need it most? 

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in handy. Like receiving an oil change for your car, routine tune-ups are vital for keeping your HVAC system running at its best. And to get the maximum from each maintenance visit, you should consider signing up for an HVAC maintenance contract

This agreement is an arrangement between you and a trusted HVAC contractor. Membership takes the uncertainty out of HVAC service by delivering routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled visits and other benefits. An HVAC maintenance contract isn’t mandatory to schedule tune-ups with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, but we highly endorse signing up. Here are six reasons why. 

1. Built-In Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance 

Life gets busy, so it’s easy to forget about requesting furnace maintenance for the fall and air conditioning maintenance before the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll be sent scheduled reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unfamiliar with why HVAC maintenance is so beneficial, consider these benefits: 

  • Reveal small problems early on: Issues with your HVAC equipment usually form gradually. When a technician checks the internal components annually, it’s possible to pinpoint and fix smaller problems before they become big headaches. 
  • Lower the risk of equipment failures: By fixing that loose fan belt and balancing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance appointment, the risk of a sudden breakdown goes down. 
  • Saving on repair costs: Planned HVAC maintenance is an affordable, predictable amount that minimizes the need for many major repairs. 
  • Increase energy efficiency: The Department of Energy estimates that yearly maintenance can increase HVAC efficiency by up to 30%, bringing down your heating and cooling bills at the same time. 
  • Encourage home comfort: When your heating and cooling system operates the way it is supposed to, airflow improves for consistent temperatures and more comfortable humidity in your home. 
  • Lengthen the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can live years longer compared to a neglected one, saving you on early replacement equipment. 
  • Provide safety: An equipment and safety assessment during each visit delivers peace of mind that your heating and cooling system is working like it’s supposed to. 
  • Adhere to your warranty: Most HVAC manufacturers prioritize preventive maintenance to such a degree that they require once-a-year tune-ups to keep your warranty valid. Investing a little in maintenance now safeguards 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 typically anticipate same-day service—even on nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members. 

3. Priority Install 

Planning on replacing your heating and cooling system? An HVAC agreement grants access to the most rapid installs possible, even during the most hectic weeks. 

4. Discount on Repairs and Services 

Preventive maintenance reduces the need for repair work, but if your system needs some TLC, having an HVAC maintenance contract provides a 15% discount. You’ll also enjoy 15% off indoor air quality products, including pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners. 

5. No Trip Charge 

Heating and cooling repairs are in some cases necessary, but they can get pricey fast. Luckily, with an HVAC agreement, you’ll never have to pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour service calls. 

6. Repair Guarantee 

How can you ensure 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 work leaves you dissatisfied, your technician will return to set things right.
