The weather is absolutely beautiful today here in Maryland. It’s 70 degrees outside as I write this. It’s the perfect temperature to open up the windows and turn off the home’s heating and cooling system. Your HVAC system sure could use the rest after the record-setting winter we just experienced.
With the weather as it is, now is a great time to have your cooling system looked at by a professional. Summer will be coming soon, and—if this summer is anywhere near as hot as this past winter was cold—you’ll be thankful you had a professional make sure your cooling system is in good shape.
Many of our customers have been making that call to us in the last couple weeks. For many of those customers, the visit we make to their home and the checks we run on their cooling system is completely included in their service agreement, so they have no payment to make for the system check-up. In this post, I will describe Service Agreements, what they include, and why they’re valuable.
HVAC Service Agreements
For a small monthly or yearly fee (however you prefer to pay), you can activate a service agreement with our company. We offer a Service Agreement plan that cares for your home’s plumbing system, another for your HVAC system, and yet another that includes care for both systems.
Among other things, the HVAC-related Service Agreements include two annual 15-point preventive maintenances on your heating and cooling system. One of these preventive maintenances is often completed in spring, and it is those that I referred to earlier: the appointments that many of our customers are currently scheduling. The plans also include an automatic 10% discount on any service needed and priority attention for emergency service. Depending on the plan, it might also include a 5-year warranty on repairs done as well as an exemption from overtime rates and emergency service fees.
While those extra perks are nice, the preventive maintenances alone are reason enough to have a Service Plan. Here’s why…
The Importance of Service Agreements
It’s sad but true: over time, your heating and cooling system will lose efficiency and lose the ability to keep your home comfortable. However, a service agreement that includes preventive maintenance can help maintain a system’s efficiency and prolong the useful life of the system. Increased efficiency results in a more comfortable home and a less painful energy bill each month. We are also able to spot small problems with your HVAC system before they turn into big, expensive problems.
