The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract

Your heating and cooling system is vital to a sense of comfort and high air quality. The furnace and air conditioner work tirelessly in the background, heating, cooling, controlling the humidity and filtering your home's indoor air. Lots of homeowners take this functionality for granted until they have to do without them. If your AC has ever malfunctioned on a sweltering summer day, or the furnace has stopped working during a blizzard, you can understand what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner likes to deal with last minute repairs, higher energy bills or inconsistent home comfort. What if there was a way to maintain a constant source of clean, conditioned air when you want it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in handy. Like getting an oil change for your car, consistent tune-ups are vital for keeping your HVAC system running at its best. And to get the maximum from each maintenance visit, you should look into signing up for an HVAC maintenance contract.

This plan is an arrangement between you and the HVAC contractor. Participation takes the guesswork out of HVAC service by supplying routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled service calls and other perks. An HVAC maintenance contract is not required to ask for tune-ups with Air Engineers Service Experts, but we highly encourage registering. Here are six reasons why.

1. Automatic Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busier, so it’s easy to forget about scheduling furnace maintenance for the fall and air conditioning maintenance in the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll be sent friendly reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unfamiliar with why HVAC maintenance is so important, check out these benefits:

  • Uncover smaller problems early: Issues with your heating and cooling often progress gradually. When a technician checks the internal components once a year, it’s possible to find and fix little problems before they turn into big headaches.
  • Lower the risk of equipment failures: By fixing that loose fan belt and evening out the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance appointment, the chance of a mid-season breakdown diminishes.
  • Saving on repair costs: Routine HVAC maintenance is an affordable, expected expense that eliminates the need for many major repairs.
  • Enhance energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that yearly maintenance can increase HVAC efficiency by close to 30%, reducing your heating and cooling bills simultaneously.
  • Encourage home comfort: When your HVAC system functions the way it should, airflow improves for even temperatures and more manageable humidity in every room.
  • Lengthen the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can live years longer versus a neglected one, saving you on early replacement equipment.
  • Ensure safety: An equipment and safety assessment during each visit offers peace of mind that your HVAC system is performing safely.
  • Maintain your warranty: The bulk of HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance so much that they require once-a-year tune-ups to keep your warranty valid. Investing a little in maintenance now protects you from expensive repairs that your warranty will cover.

2. Priority Service

Having an HVAC maintenance contract puts you at the front of the line when you schedule an emergency repair. You can usually expect same-day service—even on nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members.

3. Priority Install

Planning to replace your heating and cooling system? An HVAC agreement allows access to the most rapid installs possible, even during the busiest weeks.

4. Discount on Repairs and Services

Routine maintenance lowers the need for repair calls, but if your system needs some professional attention, having an HVAC maintenance plan provides a 15% discount. You’ll also receive 15% off indoor air quality products, like pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.

5. No Trip Charge

Utility repairs are sometimes unavoidable, but they can get expensive fast. Fortunately, with an HVAC maintenance plan, you’ll never be expected to pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour service calls.

6. Repair Guarantee

How can you know the technician has performed a job well done? Put your mind at ease with a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all repairs and installations for one year. If the work leaves you dissatisfied, your technician will return to make things right.
