Expensive things, like cars, come with a warranty, which is the manufacturer’s guarantee that your purchase will keep on working the way it should for the life of the warranty… IF you uphold your end of the bargain. When you buy a new HVAC system, read the fine print of your warranty, and you will find that in order to keep it valid you must have the unit serviced annually.
Is this just a scam for these companies to get more money out of you?
Actually, no. There are two very good reasons to make sure you have your heating and cooling system checked and tuned annually.
First, if there is a problem with your HVAC system it can become a serious health risk to you and your family. A licensed contractor can ensure that carbon monoxide is not leaking into your home.
Second, the cost of annual maintenance has been shown to pay for itself in operating cost savings during the peak season alone.
Together, these are reasons that the EPA and DOE recommend annual maintenance on your system—you should do it whether under warranty or not.
So it makes sense to have your HVAC system maintained each year, and if you’re looking to save some money it makes sense to enter into a service agreement. This ensures your heating and cooling system operates safely and efficiently and your protect your warranty. Even better, service agreements allow for planned visits during regular hours, and thus we can plan for and control costs and offer special services and priority treatment to customers who sign up for these plans.
