The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract

Your HVAC equipment is essential to a sense of comfort and indoor air quality. The furnace and air conditioner work around the clock in the background, heating, cooling, managing the humidity and filtering your indoor air. Many homeowners take these functions for granted until they’re forced to do without them. If your AC has ever stopped working on a scorching summer day, or the furnace has stopped working during a blizzard, you know what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner likes to deal with urgent repairs, high energy bills or inconsistent home comfort. What if there was a way to guarantee a constant supply of clean, climate controlled air when you need it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in. Like receiving an oil change for your car, consistent tune-ups are essential for keeping your HVAC system up and running. And to get every benefit from each maintenance visit, you should look into signing up for an HVAC maintenance contract.

This contract is an arrangement between you and the HVAC contractor. Membership takes the guesswork out of HVAC service by delivering routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled appointments and other perks. An HVAC maintenance contract isn't mandatory to schedule tune-ups with Strogen's Service Experts, but we highly recommend registering. Here are six reasons why.

1. Automated Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busy, so people often forget about scheduling furnace maintenance in the fall and air conditioning maintenance in the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll get consistent reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unfamiliar with why HVAC maintenance is so important, check out these benefits:

  • Expose minor problems early on: Issues with your heating and cooling tend to form gradually. When a technician examines the internal components each year, it’s possible to pinpoint and take care of smaller problems before they turn into big headaches.
  • Reduce the risk of breakdowns: By securing that loose fan belt and stabilizing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance visit, the risk of a mid-season breakdown decreases.
  • Lower repair costs: Scheduled HVAC maintenance is an affordable, foreseeable cost that reduces the need for most major repairs.
  • Enhance energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that annual maintenance can enhance HVAC efficiency by as high as 30%, reducing your heating and cooling bills in the process.
  • Increase home comfort: When your HVAC system performs the way it should, airflow improves for consistent temperatures and more comfortable humidity throughout the house.
  • Extend the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can survive for years longer than a neglected one, saving you on premature replacement costs.
  • Guarantee safety: An equipment and safety inspection during every visit offers peace of mind that your home comfort system is running like it's supposed to.
  • Adhere to your warranty: The bulk of HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance so much that they demand yearly tune-ups to keep your warranty in good standing. Investing a little in upkeep now protects you from costly repairs that your warranty would otherwise cover.

2. Priority Service

Having an HVAC maintenance plan puts you at the front of the line when you request an emergency repair. You can typically expect same-day service—even on 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 contract gives you access to the quickest installs possible, even during the most hectic weeks.

4. Discount on Repairs and Services

Regular maintenance decreases the need for repair calls, but if your system needs some attention, having an HVAC maintenance agreement provides a 15% discount. You’ll also have access to 15% off indoor air quality products, including pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.

5. No Trip Charge

HVAC repairs are occasionally unavoidable, but they can get pricey fast. Fortunately, with an HVAC membership, you’ll never pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour appointments.

6. Repair Guarantee

How can you be sure 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 results leave you dissatisfied, the technician will return to make things right.
