If you didn’t know, preventative HVAC maintenance is important to help maintain a system’s efficiency. Also, it doesn’t matter if you had the system installed last spring (and it’s now October), or it is over five years old, having it checked semi-annually or at least annually, will have an impact on how well the unit performs.
Immediately after a technician is done installing an HVAC unit, most will provide the customer with the opportunity to take advantage of one of the company’s HVAC Maintenance Agreements. While some may opt out because they just had a brand new, state-of-the-art HVAC unit installed, there are many reasons why you should. In fact, here are three reasons why you should opt in and not out:
Most, if not all, agreements offer priority service.
It’s obvious that one of the best reasons to consider a Maintenance Agreement is because your unit will receive an annual checkup. However, another awesome benefit is that you always get priority over other customers who chose to opt out of acquiring an agreement, as well as those who are new customers. This means that if you need service, and another customer needs service, YOU are the first stop. Not to mention, most companies WILL NOT charge you any overtime fees, and they will also CALL YOU to remind you about scheduling your unit’s annual checkup.
You will get discounts on repairs or services.
Another perk that comes from signing a Maintenance Agreement is that most offer discounts on repairs and/or services. So, if you ever discover that your heating unit stops working one day or night, you call the company, and then the technician comes out and discovers your thermostat is malfunctioning, you will likely get a discount on its repair.
Your brand new, state-of-the-art HVAC unit will last longer, and your energy bills will likely be lower.
There is no denying that one of the GREATEST benefits that come from signing a Maintenance Agreement is that you will get all of the great things we mentioned above! And, because you do get those things, it is likely that your HVAC unit will last longer than someone who has not opted to guarantee that their unit is checked (via the terms of the Maintenance Agreement.)
So, in the end, if you want to ensure your HVAC unit is running at full capacity, get a discount on repairs and see your unit lasting for decades rather than years, consider signing Maintenance Agreement!
