So your furnace and air conditioning system is working great, but do you have a service contract to back it up? The quality of your service contract makes a huge difference in the quality of your heating and cooling, especially over time. Let’s take a look at some of the most important reasons to have a good service contract now rather than later.
A service plan can help prevent costly repairs.
You know what they say – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is exactly what an HVAC service contract gives you – an ounce of prevention. As you might imagine, that ounce costs a great deal less than a pound of cure that you would need later on without someone to find problems ahead of time and fix them.
Small problems in infrastructure systems around the home only get bigger and worse. They never fix themselves, and they never go away on their own. You need someone who understands how to find these problems quickly and patch them up, because they will only become more expensive the longer that you let them stay.
A service plan extends the life of your heating and cooling system.
Heating and cooling systems are expensive, and there is never a good time to replace the entire thing. You will eventually have to, but you may as well put it off as long as you can. The way to do this is to initiate a service contract for maintenance that will help to extend the life of your hardware and infrastructure.
How exactly does a service contract extend the life of your hardware and infrastructure? First of all, if everything is running smoothly as it should, the working parts of your HVAC system do not have to work as hard. This alone will save you years on the system, allowing you to save your money for a future iteration that will have more features.
You learn about upgrades before anyone else.
One of the best ways to keep from replacing an entire system is to replace it a bit at a time when upgrades become available. You will never know about these new upgrades unless you get a service contract in place. The routine maintenance that you get on your system also comes with suggestions about how to improve your system for the future.
These improvements may come in the form of very small changes in your system, but they make a huge difference down the road. Because technology tends to get better over time, those small replacements will add more life to your HVAC system and make it more stable, even as it ages.
You get priority service in emergencies.
First of all, your HVAC system will be able to better withstand unexpected emergencies such as inclement weather. However, when you get those inevitable cracks in your system from big storms or some other event, you want someone to fix the problem immediately. When you have a service contract in place, you can do this quite easily.
If you are a current customer, typically you will get priority in an emergency versus someone that is a new prospective client.
In short, having a good HVAC system without a good service contract is like having a wonderful looking Porsche without car insurance. You have a great thing, but you need to maintain it as well. Do so in the most cost-effective way – get a service contract so that you can cut down on problems and fix them before they become huge, expensive issues.
