What Are the Benefits of an HVAC Maintenance Agreement?

Your home HVAC system is the key to keeping your indoor climate just the way you like it. If you expect to maintain that climate during the height of summer or the dead of winter, you’re going to need to make sure it’s getting the care and attention it needs. Regular maintenance is vital to keeping your HVAC system operating at peak performance, even if it seems to be running just fine. When it comes to HVAC care, preventative maintenance is greatly preferable to last-minute emergency repairs. If you want to avoid any nasty surprises in your future, you may find it worthwhile to invest in an HVAC maintenance agreement.

An HVAC maintenance agreement allows you to retain regular preventative care services for your HVAC system. We’re happy to offer a comprehensive HVAC maintenance agreement that’s both affordable and effective. With two yearly checkups, a labor warranty, coil cleaning, and discounts on parts and labor, we’re confident we can keep both you and your home happy. Still unsure if an HVAC maintenance agreement is right for you? Here are just a few of the benefits of signing up.

Solving Problems Before They Appear

The biggest advantage of having an HVAC maintenance agreement is that you’ll be able to nip any potentially serious problems in the bud. Even the simplest of issues can develop major complications if left untreated for long enough, and plenty of homeowners have made the mistake of letting simple repairs go undone. You may not always be able to tell if there’s a problem with your HVAC system, but the longer it goes without repairs, the more difficult and expensive it’s going to be to fix.

When you have an HVAC maintenance agreement, you’ll have a trained technician inspect your system frequently enough that you won’t have to worry about any problems getting out of hand without you noticing. You can’t expect to catch everything on your own, so having an expert eye is key in detecting any issues that might have developed within your HVAC system. With Watts’s biannual checkups, we’ll be able to catch simple things like loose wires or freon leaks before they can escalate and become a much larger problem.

Saving on Repairs and Your Energy Bill

It may cost more money upfront, but many homeowners find an HVAC maintenance agreement to be a sound investment in the long run. When you sign up for a maintenance agreement with Watts Heating and Cooling, you’ll already be saving money on repairs down the road. Simply by having the agreement, you’ll receive a 10 percent discount on both labor and any replacement parts your system may need. And since we can stay ahead of any problems that might arise through our preventative maintenance, it’s unlikely you’ll need to worry about any massive repairs (and the equally massive bills attached to them) at all.

You might be surprised to find, though, that a maintenance agreement can save you money on your utility bills as well. The fact is, a well-maintained HVAC system will run more efficiently than a neglected one. Higher efficiency means you’ll be drawing less power from the grid, which in turn means a lower utility cost overall. With an HVAC maintenance agreement, you can save not only on the repair of your system but on its very operation as well.

Avoiding Inconvenient Outages

If you had to guess, when would you think people need the most repairs for their HVAC systems? If you said the summer and winter, you would be correct! Extreme outdoor temperatures force people to rely heavily on their HVAC systems to maintain their indoor climate, and that extra usage leads to a widespread epidemic of breakdowns.

While your HVAC system breaking can be frustrating at any time of the year, those peak seasons only further complicate the situation. First of all, your home will have become either freezing cold or swelteringly hot. If there are more sensitive people in your household, such as a young child or an elderly relative, your home may simply not be habitable until the problem is solved. Secondly, due to the spike in repair calls, it’s unlikely the problem will be fixed quickly or cheaply. With the sheer number of other people who need help, you might find yourself waiting for some time until a technician can make it out to your home. When you eventually do get help, the overtime rates and last-minute nature of the job are likely to cause a significant bump in the labor cost.

With an HVAC maintenance agreement, you’ll be able to avoid all that seasonal trouble. By having a technician scheduled for a tune-up before the seasons change, you’ll be able to make sure your system is running smoothly before things get too extreme outside.

Regularly Maintained Systems Last Longer

No piece of machinery lasts forever, and your HVAC system is no exception. No matter how cutting edge your furnace or air conditioner was when you bought it, eventually, you’ll need to buy a new one. That being said, the time between when you installed your current appliances and when you’ll need to replace them is largely in your hands. If you make it work on and on without any care, you can be certain it will die out long before the manufacturer’s expected life span.

However, if you take the time to care for it, you can give it the longest life span possible. The better maintained an HVAC system is, the longer it will be able to effectively control your indoor climate. An HVAC maintenance agreement is a guarantee that your system will be well-maintained for as long as you have it. Effectively, you’re investing in the operation of the system itself. Our technicians are experts when it comes to preventative care and can ensure that your investment yields positive returns.

An HVAC maintenance agreement can give you peace of mind both now and in the future. The regular preventive maintenance can help you avoid any problems in the immediate future, while also helping extend the life span of your HVAC system as a whole. If you’re ready to invest in a plan, give us a call. We would be more than happy to help with all your maintenance needs.
