The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract

Your HVAC equipment is vital to a comfortable home and healthy indoor air. The furnace and air conditioner work tirelessly in the background, heating, cooling, managing the humidity and filtering your indoor air. Many homeowners take this functionality for granted until they’re forced to do without them. If your air conditioner has ever broken down on a blistering summer day, or the furnace can't generate enough heat during a blizzard, you know what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner wishes to deal with last minute repairs, high energy bills or problems with their sense of comfort. What if there was a way to guarantee a continuous source of clean, climate controlled air when you want it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in. Like receiving an oil change for your car, regularly scheduled tune-ups are a must for keeping your HVAC system in good shape. And to get the maximum from each maintenance visit, you should look into enrolling in an HVAC maintenance contract.

This agreement 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 is not required to request tune-ups with Parker Pearce Service Experts, but we highly recommend registering. Here are six reasons why.

1. Automatic Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busy, so people often forget about setting up furnace maintenance for the fall and air conditioning maintenance before the spring. With an HVAC membership, you’ll receive scheduled reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unfamiliar with why HVAC maintenance is so important, consider these benefits:

  • Expose minor problems early: Issues with your heating and cooling often develop little by little. When a technician examines the internal components annually, it’s possible to find and take care of little problems before they become big headaches.
  • Reduce the risk of equipment failures: By tightening that loose fan belt and stabilizing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance call, the risk of a mid-season breakdown diminishes.
  • Saving on repair costs: Routine HVAC maintenance is an affordable, foreseeable amount that reduces the need for most major repairs.
  • Enhance energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that yearly maintenance can boost HVAC efficiency by close to 30%, lowering your heating and cooling bills in the process.
  • Boost home comfort: When your home comfort system operates the way it is supposed to, airflow improves for consistent temperatures and more balanced humidity throughout the house.
  • Prolong the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can live years longer than a neglected one, saving you on premature replacement costs.
  • Ensure safety: An equipment and safety evaluation during every visit offers peace of mind that your heating and cooling system is working like it's supposed to.
  • Protect your warranty: Most HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance to such a degree that they necessitate annual tune-ups to keep your warranty valid. Investing a little in maintenance now shields you from pricey repairs that your warranty should 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 usually anticipate same-day service—even during nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members.

3. Priority Install

Planning on replacing your home comfort system? An HVAC contract allows access to the quickest installs available, even during the busiest weeks.

4. Discount on Repairs and Services

Regular maintenance lowers the need for repair calls, but if your system needs some attention, having an HVAC maintenance contract provides a 15% discount. You’ll also have access to 15% off indoor air quality products, including pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.

5. No Trip Charge

HVAC repairs are in some cases unavoidable, but they can get pricey fast. Luckily, with an HVAC membership, you’ll never be expected to pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour visits.

6. Repair Guarantee

How can you be sure 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 results leave you disappointed, the technician will return to set things right.
