What Is An HVAC Preventative Maintenance Agreement?

HVAC preventative maintenance agreements are provided by technicians to maintain HVAC components. They’re typically a small monthly fee and cover a wide range of services done regularly.

What’s The Difference Between Central HVAC & Ductless HVAC?

Our HVAC preventative maintenance agreements include:

● Furnace inspection & maintenance
● Air conditioner inspection & maintenance
● Air filter changes
● Thermostat tests
● 10% Off Parts & Labor For Necessary Repairs
● No Added Service Charges on Repairs

Many HVAC preventative maintenance agreements are targeted at owners of commercial properties. They typically get the most value out of these contracts, as mounting repairs and time spent on maintenance results in significant unnecessary cost to the business.

How Can HVAC Preventative Maintenance Agreements Help You?

Save On Repair Costs

● Ductless systems can be installed in almost any home. Because there is no need to install new ductwork, ductless mini-split systems can exist even in homes where there’s no space for ducts. Best of all, they can be mounted on the ceiling, wall, or the floor.

● Ductless systems are relatively quiet. Since you don’t hear the sound of air moving through ducts, you don’t need to worry about excessive noise.

When Should You Choose One Over The Other?

Choose a central HVAC system if:

Having an HVAC technician do maintenance for you will increase the life of your system’s components while also detecting problems before they turn into repairs. This will ultimately save you a great deal in the long run.

Not to mention, many preventative maintenance agreements offer a discount on parts and labor.

For a comparison, let’s say you need to replace a compressor. That could be around $2,000 for HVAC repairs in Roswell. If your HVAC is well maintained, however, that compressor may not need to be replaced for a much longer time.

Makes Maintenance Scheduling A Breeze

Not only will you no longer need to do the maintenance yourself, you won’t even have to manage scheduling. Most service agreements have set dates for HVAC technicians to come in and take a look at your system. Otherwise, you will get a call to schedule an appointment.

Some HVAC companies will even keep track of your maintenance records for you, giving you one less thing to worry about!

Gives You Peace of Mind

The real benefit of an HVAC preventative maintenance contract is simply not having to worry about it. You can rest assured that your HVAC system is well taken care of and that any repairs that take place are completely necessary and timely.

However, remember to read the agreement and make sure that what you need is actually covered under the service contract!

Are HVAC Preventative Maintenance Agreements Worth It?

In our honest opinion: it depends. Not everyone needs one, however we will recommend preventative maintenance contracts to many people.

Commercial property owners will almost always want to have a HVAC preventative maintenance contract, as keeping track of maintenance and paying for untimely repairs represents a cost to the business.

Residential property owners are often advised to have one, especially for older systems. Many decide against it, though, especially if all their components are under manufacturer’s warranty.
