Air ConditioningMaintenanceTipsIs an A/C Tune-up the same as a Maintenance Plan?

May 5, 2023by Dev

Keeping your heating and air conditioning system functioning efficiently is crucial for homeowners, and a yearly HVAC maintenance plan offers numerous benefits to achieve this goal. At Andersen, we understand the importance of regular maintenance to avoid unexpected repairs and keep your home prepared for the upcoming season’s conditions. While a one-time tune-up or maintenance appointment may seem immediately cheaper, you may often miss out on additional benefits that will save you money in the long run.

A maintenance plan is an agreement between you and a professional HVAC company that outlines the services they will perform on your system throughout the year. Typically, it includes two annual inspections (one in the spring and one in the fall) to ensure your system is prepared for the upcoming season. Additionally, the agreement often includes discounts on repairs and emergency priority service.

In comparison, a tune-up is a one-time service that provides a thorough inspection of your system, cleaning of key components, and minor adjustments to ensure your system is functioning efficiently. However, a tune-up does not provide the same level of comprehensive care as a maintenance agreement.

By investing in a maintenance agreement with Andersen, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

Discounted Repair on Service Call

Save money if your system needs repairs. We offer discounts on repairs for customers with a maintenance agreement, which can help offset the cost of unexpected repairs.

Priority Service

Receive priority service in case of emergencies. If your system breaks down during a heat wave or cold snap, you’ll be at the top of the list for repairs. This can help to minimize downtime and reduce the risk of further damage to your system.

Discounted or Waived Diagnostic Fee

We understand that diagnostic services can be costly. With a maintenance agreement, the diagnostic fee may be discounted or waived entirely, which can save you money if your system needs troubleshooting.

No After-Hours Charges

Avoid additional fees for after-hours service in case of emergency. With a maintenance agreement, you won’t have to pay extra for these services.

Money Towards a New System

If your HVAC system is nearing the end of its lifespan, a maintenance agreement can be a smart investment. We offer incentives for customers who purchase a new system from us, such as money towards the cost of a new unit. This can help to offset the cost of a major investment and make it easier to upgrade your system when the time comes.

Investing in a yearly HVAC maintenance agreement with Andersen Heating & Cooling can help keep your system running efficiently and effectively while also saving you money on repairs and other services. Contact us today to learn more about our maintenance agreements and how they can benefit you.
