When it’s time to replace your old HVAC unit, you’re likely to be offered a maintenance agreement. A maintenance agreement is essentially a contract between you and your HVAC provider that ensures routine service on your unit. These agreements can be called many names and come in different levels, so it’s important to be clear about what is being offered.
How do you know if you should have a maintenance agreement? Well, this largely depends on the service provider. A trusted and reputable HVAC contractor will be honest with you when discussing agreement terms and will act in the best interests of you and your home. There are several ways an HVAC maintenance agreement can benefit you and your home.
Regular Service Saves Money
Having routine maintenance keeps your HVAC system efficient, which means lower energy bills. Basic agreements typically include a Spring tune-up to the air conditioning, and a Fall check and maintenance to the heating side of the system. These visits are designed to clean, check and ensure all components are functioning properly. Higher level service agreements may cover monthly filter changesand discounts on repairs, along with the system check-ups before summer and winter. Savings on energy bills can easily outweigh the cost of a contract, so the agreement pays for itself. Some agreements also include a discount on the price of repair parts, which reduces any surprise expenses associated with your A/C and heating equipment.
Summer and Winter are extremely busy times for HVAC contractors, and they often struggle to serve all of their customers. If it’s 95 degrees outside and your A/C stops working, you won’t want to wait long for it to be repaired. A contract with priority treatment ensures that any emergency repair or service will be handled first before non contract customers. Knowing you will always be taken care of is peace of mind only a maintenance agreement can provide.
