How a Service Agreement Will Benefit You
What’s irritating, expensive, and upsetting? Your space heater or furnace breaking down in the dead of winter. Things tend to get pretty frigid here in Batavia, so a lack of heat isn’t an option. Sure, you could just wait until your heater is broken before taking action, but that could cost much more than it would if you scheduled maintenance. Unfortunately, people don’t always think that it’s necessary to have an HVAC company come in once or twice a year to inspect your system and diagnose any present issues. Usually, they’ll have a unit installed and leave it alone until it breaks down. What they don’t know is that maintenance can save you time and money. And, a maintenance agreement could even do more.
Maintenance agreements are usually signed with your HVAC company and they’re used to make sure your systems are working for years after the initial installation. Here are a few reasons why Ken’s Heating & Air Conditioning recommends these agreements.
They save money
There are quite a few ways that a service agreement with Ken’s Heating & Air Conditioning can save you money. The first is that when we inspect, we’re looking for inefficiencies. If there is something wrong with your unit or system, it’s likely using more energy than a system that it functioning properly. Having your system maintained helps to prevent issues that would otherwise drive your energy bills through the roof. Since running your air or heat is already costly, we recommend preventing problems before the prices could rise any higher.
Another way that agreements save money is that they’re the first line of defense against malfunctions. For example, if your air conditioner breaks, the cost of a repair or replacement is going to far outweigh the cost of a quick tune-up or inspection. Additionally, if one of our technicians does notice an issue that needs to be addressed, the cost of repairing a small issue is going to less costly than if the problem because worse down the road. All in all, preventing problems that are difficult to fix is going to be much more cost-effective in the long run!
They’re hands off
Let’s face it, people are terrible about scheduling appointments. Between work and day-to-day life, the last thing on people’s minds is remembering to call our HVAC company to come check up on their systems. We understand that! With our service agreement, we’ll remind you when it’s time to set up an appointment. Say goodbye to calendars and trying to remember when it’s time to give us a call. HVAC is our top priority so that it doesn’t have to be yours.
Quick and discounted repairs
Maintenance does a lot to extend the life of your HVAC system, but it can’t prevent the inevitable. Problems happen for various reasons, and they’re often hard to predict, especially if you’re doing your best to prevent breakdowns. In these cases, Ken’s Heating & Air Conditioning puts our service agreement clients on top. With an agreement, you’ll receive priority and discounted service! For example, if your air conditioner stops working in the summer, we’ll stop over as quickly as possible. Additionally, we’ll take a percentage off of the repair, which could save you a lot of money.
Your technician will know what they’re doing
HVAC is far from easy. Between the different brands, heat exchangers, models, and more, things become complicated, even for talented technicians. If you call an HVAC company who is unfamiliar with your home, then they might have a difficult time working on your system. On the other hand, if you use the same technician several times, the time and money lost due to confusion is no longer an issue. A maintenance agreement guarantees a technician who is comfortable with your home and its HVAC system. Usually, we’ll take notes so that if a different technician comes to you, they’ll be able to handle the job!
We always recommend that all of our clients sign up for a maintenance agreement with our HVAC company. We wholeheartedly believe that prevention is your best bet when it comes to your HVAC unit. Interested in an agreement with us? Request a quote or call us today!
