Your HVAC system is an important part of ensuring a safe, healthy, and comfortable home environment for the whole family. One way you can help create this is to take advantage of a service maintenance agreement.
An HVAC service agreement is a contract between you and a local company to cover a certain range of needs throughout the year for one cost. Each contract differs in what it specifically covers, but benefits often include scheduled maintenance visits, labor cost for certain types of repairs, parts, and priority over non-contracted customers.
Are you considering a service agreement with your HVAC provider? If you’re on the fence about this valuable benefit, one of the best ways to decide is to know who often benefits the most from choosing a service contract. Here are five perfect fits.
1. Those Who Can’t Do the Maintenance
Are you physically able to do routine maintenance tasks for both your heating and cooling systems? Certainly, there are many reasons why you might not be up to maintenance work. You might not be in good health or have the mobility to do the work. You might feel inexperienced or untrained to do certain checklist items. Or you may want someone who can spot potential problems early on.
Whatever the reason, if you don’t feel comfortable doing maintenance, you should let someone else handle it. Avoiding the problem entirely could lead to a lack of maintenance and repairs — something that costs even more money and effort in the long run.
2. Those With Complex Systems
Homeowners with a large home, businesses with multiple units, and anyone with an older system often benefit the most from service contracts. Simply put, those whose systems are most at risk of failure and most in need of full, regular maintenance visits. Doing so will help keep the whole system functioning well and will keep money in your pocket for when smaller parts of it do break down.
3. Those With Harsh Weather
The HVAC system must withstand the elements and always work well when under pressure from the weather. Idaho residents get the brunt of both harsh winters and summer heat. If your heating or cooling system goes on the fritz for even a day or two, you will suffer almost immediately.
4. Those Who Need Reminders
Today’s busy homeowners and business owners often need help to keep up with all the maintenance and repair tasks they have to perform. If you put off servicing your unit because your schedule is filled with other jobs and worries, this is an easy task to outsource. Look for a service agreement that offers notifications and reminders about regular servicing and that can fit visits into times convenient for you.
5. Those Who Need Prioritization
If your furnace breaks down in the middle of a winter snowstorm, how long can you afford to have a freezing home or business? What about an air conditioner that fails during a summer heatwave? Employers and retail owners lose customers and staff hours when their system is down. And family members in bad health or who are older can suffer serious health risks.
If you can’t risk a prolonged breakdown, a service agreement can help. Many companies prioritize contracted customers for service and repairs, so you can have confidence that things will be up and running again as soon as possible.
