3 Reasons You Should Invest in A Heating Maintenance Agreement
Almost everything in the world requires some level of maintenance. If it’s not maintained, it will almost surely, eventually need to be replaced.
Clearly, some things can’t be replaced – like your body, your mind, and your mental health. But inanimate, material things are replaceable. They all require upkeep, though. Your phone, your computer, your car, your lawnmower, your heating system, even your eyes, and teeth all need check-ups and treatment at some point.
That sounds expensive.
It can be – but it can be more expensive to NOT keep up with maintenances for your home HVAC system. And many heating and cooling companies offer twice-a-year tune-up contracts for just this purpose. Here are three solid reasons to consider buying a maintenance agreement for your home.
1. Save Energy.
In today’s world, everyone is all about saving energy – with good reason. Saving energy is obviously the responsible thing to do for the planet. In addition, as the cost of absolutely everything continues to increase, reducing the energy your heating system uses means spending less on utility bills. And, pulling less power is exactly what makes an energy-efficient system effective– which also means you’re getting what you paid for when you decided to buy one in the first place
2. Extend System Life – and Warranty.
This also lets you avoid situations where you are suddenly without heat during the dead of winter, and it works to keep repair costs down, too. Finally, just like oil changes for your vehicle, staying on top of maintenance can help your system work less hard, wear less, and last longer. So maintenance agreements actually pay for themselves – not only in dollars saved but also in terms of pain and frustration when you need it least.
Another good point to note: if you purchased an extended warranty when your system was installed, be careful – a maintenance agreement with successful tune-ups that are completed on schedule might be required for the installer to honor that warranty. It might also be necessary that the service be performed by the same company that did the installation. Be sure you check on this before you schedule your service, and make sure you are doing the right things to preserve your warranty’s validity
3. Comfort – both Physical and Mental.
In addition, ensuring your system is in proper working condition also means keeping the air in your home flowing evenly, eliminating hot and cold spots, and keeping you comfortable in every room.
The peace of mind that a maintenance agreement can bring makes it a no-brainer. What might at first seem like an additional expense turns out to be a huge win – and a solid investment in you, your home, and your family.
