The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract 

Your HVAC equipment is vital to a sense of comfort and healthy indoor air. The furnace and air conditioner work hard in the background, heating, cooling, managing the humidity and filtering your home’s indoor air. Lots of homeowners take these features for granted until they’re suddenly left without them. If your air conditioning has ever malfunctioned on a sweltering summer day, or the furnace has failed during a blizzard, you understand what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner wishes to deal with emergency repairs, higher energy bills or home comfort problems. What if there was a way to ensure an uninterrupted source of healthy, climate controlled air when you need it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in handy. Like getting an oil change for your car, consistent tune-ups are a must for keeping your HVAC system running at its best. And to get every benefit from each maintenance visit, you should consider applying for an HVAC maintenance contract.

This contract is an arrangement between you and the HVAC contractor. Participation takes the guesswork out of HVAC service by delivering routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled appointments and other benefits. An HVAC maintenance contract isn’t mandatory to request tune-ups with Mid-State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing, but we highly endorse enrolling. Here are six reasons why.

1. Automated Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busier, so it’s not hard to forget about requesting furnace maintenance in the fall and air conditioning maintenance before the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll get friendly reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unfamiliar with why HVAC maintenance is so worthwhile, check out these benefits:

  • Expose smaller problems right away: Issues with your heating and cooling often progress gradually. When a technician inspects the internal components each year, it’s possible to locate and fix smaller problems before they become big headaches.
  • Decrease the risk of unexpected shutdowns: By securing that loose fan belt and balancing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance appointment, the likelihood of an unexpected breakdown goes down.
  • Saving on repair costs: Planned HVAC maintenance is an affordable, foreseeable expense that minimizes the need for many major repairs.
  • Increase energy efficiency: The Department of Energy estimates that annual maintenance can enhance HVAC efficiency by up to 30%, reducing your heating and cooling bills at the same time.
  • Encourage home comfort: When your home comfort system performs the way it should, airflow improves for pleasant 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 compared to a neglected one, saving you on premature replacement costs.
  • Ensure safety: An equipment and safety assessment during each visit offers peace of mind that your heating and cooling system is performing safely.
  • Protect your warranty: Most HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance to such a degree that they demand annual tune-ups to keep your warranty active. Investing a little in upkeep now protects you from expensive repairs that your warranty would otherwise cover.

2. Priority Service

Having an HVAC maintenance plan puts you at the front of the line when you call to request an emergency repair. You can often anticipate same-day service—even for nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members.

3. Priority Install

Thinking about replacing your home comfort system? An HVAC contract grants access to the most rapid installs possible, even during the busiest times of year.

4. Marked Down Repairs and Services

Routine maintenance decreases the need for repair service, but if your system needs some professional attention, having an HVAC maintenance contract entitles you to a 15% discount. You’ll also enjoy 15% off indoor air quality products, including pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.

5. No Trip Charge

HVAC repairs are sometimes unavoidable, but they can get expensive fast. Thankfully, with an HVAC agreement, you’ll never be expected to pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour appointments.

6. Repair Guarantee

How can you know the technician has completed 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 unhappy, the technician will return to set things right.
