The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract 

Your HVAC system is the key to a sense of comfort and healthy indoor air. The furnace and air conditioner work around the clock in the background, heating, cooling, managing the humidity and filtering your home’s indoor air. Lots of homeowners take this functionality for granted until they’re forced to do without them. If your AC has ever broken down on a sweltering summer day, or the furnace has failed during a blizzard, you understand what this is like firsthand. 

No homeowner likes to deal with emergency repairs, higher energy bills or problems with their sense of comfort. What if you had a way to maintain a constant supply of clean, conditioned air when you need it most? 

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes into play. Like getting an oil change for your car, routine tune-ups are a must for keeping your HVAC system in good shape. And to get every benefit from each maintenance visit, you should think about applying for an HVAC maintenance contract

This agreement is an arrangement between you and an HVAC contractor. Participation takes the uncertainty out of HVAC service by providing routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled service calls and other benefits. An HVAC maintenance contract isn’t mandatory to ask for tune-ups with Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, but we highly recommend 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 in the fall and air conditioning maintenance before the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll receive scheduled reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unsure of why HVAC maintenance is so important, consider these benefits: 

  • Uncover minor problems early: Issues with your heating and cooling tend to form gradually. When a technician inspects the internal components each year, it’s possible to locate and resolve smaller problems before they grow to be big headaches. 
  • Decrease the risk of equipment failures: By fixing that loose fan belt and stabilizing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance appointment, the risk of an unexpected breakdown diminishes. 
  • Lower repair costs: Planned HVAC maintenance is an affordable, predictable expense that reduces the need for most major repairs. 
  • Enhance energy efficiency: The Department of Energy estimates that annual maintenance can boost HVAC efficiency by up to 30%, reducing your heating and cooling bills simultaneously. 
  • Encourage home comfort: When your HVAC system functions the way it should, airflow improves for consistent temperatures and more balanced humidity throughout the house. 
  • Prolong the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can last years longer versus a neglected one, saving you on untimely replacement expenses. 
  • Ensure safety: An equipment and safety assessment during each visit offers peace of mind that your home comfort system is running as intended. 
  • Maintain your warranty: The majority 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 maintenance now protects you from pricey repairs that your warranty will cover. 

2. Priority Service 

Having an HVAC maintenance agreement puts you at the front of the line when you request an emergency repair. You can often anticipate same-day service—even during nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members. 

3. Priority Install 

Planning to replace your heating and cooling system? An HVAC agreement grants access to the most rapid installs feasible, even during the busiest times of year. 

4. Marked Down Repairs and Services 

Routine maintenance decreases the need for repair work, but if your system needs some TLC, having an HVAC maintenance contract grants 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 

Utility repairs are in some cases unavoidable, but they can get pricey fast. Thankfully, 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 performed 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 disappointed, your technician will return to set things right.
