You’ve heard the commercials and seen the advertisements. You might have even heard the spiel when you had your air conditioner repaired. Or maybe you just purchased a new air conditioner and heard it then. You know the one. The one where you feel the HVAC company is trying to sell you something and get you to commit to a regular maintenance schedule. The HVAC technician probably told you a regular maintenance schedule extends the life of your HVAC system and cuts down on unnecessary wear and tear and the frequency of service calls to repair your unit. Is it all a ploy to get you to spend more money or is it actually important to the care of your HVAC unit?
The Benefits far outweigh the cost
Maintenance agreements or Comfort Guard Protection as Patterson calls them are very important to the care, longevity, and efficiency of your HVAC unit. While consumers, especially homeowners, are constantly bombarded with offers to buy more services, extend contracts and warranties, and spend more money on their homes and personal property, some offers are worthwhile and will ultimately save the homeowner time and money. A maintenance agreement with your reputable HVAC company like Patterson Heating & Air Conditioning is worthwhile and will benefit you and your HVAC system.
What are the Benefits to a Maintenance Agreement?
Your HVAC Unit
The first and foremost benefit to a maintenance agreement is to the HVAC unit itself. A maintenance agreement includes two annual inspections: the first inspection is for your air conditioner and it takes place typically in the spring; and the second inspection is in the fall during which your certified Patterson technician will check on your furnace or heating system.
During these inspections, your certified HVAC technician will ensure that your unit is clean and working efficiently. Keeping your unit clean is the first step in maintaining your unit and maximizing its efficiency. If your system isn’t working at its most efficient, your HVAC technician will be able to diagnose the problem and potentially prevent costly and inconvenient repairs.
Priority Service for your Charlotte home
Summer is a busy time for HVAC companies. If you’re A/C unit is going to stop working, it’s probably going to quit on you at the worst time…..the hottest days of summer. If you’ve ever had this happen, you’ll appreciate the added benefit of priority service. Priority service is just what the name implies. If you have a maintenance agreement, you get to cut in line and receive service faster.
Saves You Money
When there is a problem with your unit and a repair is necessary, a maintenance agreement will give you a discounted price on repairs. Not only will the service agreement decrease the frequency of repairs, but it will save you money when the time comes to make a repair.
Also, an inefficient HVAC unit also raises your utility bills, so when your HVAC technician tells you that your system is running efficiently, you can rest assured that you are not spending unnecessary dollars on your utility bills.
Don’t Void Your Warranty
If you have a manufacturer’s warranty for your system, keep in mind that failing to keep to a regular maintenance schedule could void your warranty. Heating and air conditioning units need proper care by a licensed professional. If you don’t hold up your end of the bargain and keep to a regular maintenance schedule, you may find that the warranty is no longer valid.
