Maintenance Agreement: Should You Have One?

Maintenance Agreement: Should You Have One?Keeping your home’s HVAC equipment working reliably is critical for your family’s comfort, especially over our prolonged cooling seasons. Although you probably know that it needs routine inspections, cleanings and adjustments to stay in good shape, it’s easy to put off or forget to schedule these essential services. Signing a maintenance agreement with a knowledgeable, well-established HVAC company can make remembering hassle-free because you’ll get friendly reminders whenever service is needed.

Maintenance Agreements Have Numerous Advantages

In addition to making semi-annual visit scheduling easier, there are a number of other reasons to have a maintenance contract:

  • Better efficiency. Neglecting preventive care will gradually erode your equipment’s energy efficiency and increase your operating costs. The twice-a-year tuneups your HVAC system receives under a maintenance contract can end that slow and steady decline in efficiency and help keep your energy bills under control.
  • Fewer repairs. Having a certified technician thoroughly inspect your HVAC equipment during a maintenance contract’s semi-annual visits means that any developing problems can be caught early on. This allows you to have these issues addressed before they have chance to escalate and require a more extensive and expensive repair.
  • Greater reliability. By keeping your HVAC system well maintained and fixing any emerging issues before they develop into big problems, you reduce the risk of a possible breakdown or failure when the components are under the most strain in the middle of the cooling season.
  • Longer lifespan. Mechanical equipment always operates more reliably and lasts longer if it’s properly maintained, and this applies to your costly HVAC system components too. Keeping yours in good repair with a maintenance contract can help you postpone the expense and inconvenience of an equipment replacement with less risk of it failing unexpectedly.
  • Warranty compliance. HVAC manufacturers typically include a stipulation about timely maintenance in their warranties. When your equipment is maintained under a service agreement, you’ll have peace of mind that you’re in full warranty compliance if a covered component fails.
