The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract

Your heating and cooling system is the key to a sense of comfort and high air quality. The furnace and air conditioner work hard in the background, heating, cooling, managing the humidity and filtering your home's indoor air. A lot of homeowners take this functionality for granted until they're suddenly left without them. If your air conditioner has ever stopped working on a scorching summer day, or the furnace has stopped working during a blizzard, you understand what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner wishes to deal with urgent repairs, a spike in energy bills or inconsistent home comfort. What if you could ensure a constant source of healthy, climate controlled air when you need it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in. Like obtaining an oil change for your car, regularly scheduled tune-ups are vital for keeping your HVAC system running at its best. And to get the maximum from each maintenance visit, you should consider signing up for an HVAC maintenance contract.

This agreement is an arrangement between you and an HVAC contractor. Membership takes the guesswork out of HVAC service by supplying routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled appointments and other advantages. An HVAC maintenance contract isn't required to schedule tune-ups with Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts, but we highly endorse enrolling. Here are six reasons why.

1. Automatic Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busier, 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 friendly reminders to get an appointment on your calendar. If you’re unsure of why HVAC maintenance is so important, take a look at these benefits:

  • Expose smaller problems early on: Issues with your home comfort system tend to develop little by little. When a technician checks the internal components once a year, it’s possible to find and take care of smaller problems before they turn into big headaches.
  • Reduce the risk of breakdowns: By tightening that loose fan belt and stabilizing the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance appointment, the risk of an unexpected breakdown decreases.
  • Saving on repair costs: Scheduled HVAC maintenance is an affordable, expected expense that minimizes the need for many major repairs.
  • Increase energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that yearly maintenance can increase HVAC efficiency by as high as 30%, bringing down your heating and cooling bills simultaneously.
  • Encourage home comfort: When your HVAC system operates the way it should, airflow improves for pleasant temperatures and more comfortable humidity in your home.
  • 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 assessment during every visit grants peace of mind that your home comfort system is running as intended.
  • Maintain your warranty: Most HVAC manufacturers value preventive maintenance so much that they necessitate once-a-year tune-ups to keep your warranty active. Investing a little in maintenance now shields you from pricey repairs that your warranty should cover.

2. Priority Service

Having an HVAC maintenance contract puts you at the front of the line when you call to request an emergency repair. You can typically anticipate same-day service—even for nights, weekends and holidays—thanks to 24/7/365 guaranteed priority service for members.

3. Priority Install

Thinking about replacing your HVAC system? An HVAC agreement grants access to the most rapid installs possible, even during the busiest weeks.

4. Discount on Repairs and Services

Preventive maintenance decreases the need for repair work, but if your system needs some TLC, having an HVAC maintenance contract entitles you to a 15% discount. You’ll also receive 15% off indoor air quality products, such as pleated filters, whole-house humidifiers and charged media air cleaners.

5. No Trip Charge

Heating and cooling repairs are in some cases necessary, but they can get pricey fast. Thankfully, with an HVAC maintenance plan, you’ll never have 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 performed a job well done? Put your mind at ease with a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all repairs and installations for one year. If the work leaves you disappointed, the technician will return to make things right.
