Are HVAC Service Contracts Worth It?
The HVAC system in your home is likely your most expensive appliance. It also provides the comfort you’ve come to rely on, which is why an annual maintenance contract with Charleston Heating + Air makes financial sense. These plans automate the servicing of your HVAC system at scheduled intervals.
Besides the convenience, the benefits of a maintenance plan are many. Scheduled maintenance means that your HVAC system will run as efficiently and dependable as possible. HVAC appliances need regular maintenance performed by you and an HVAC professional to run at their best. Because they’re exposed to a lot of household dust and the outdoor condenser is subject to weather 24/7, HVAC systems need more attention than other kinds of home appliances.
What’s Included in a Professional Maintenance Contract?
At Charleston Heating + Air, we include these benefits in our annual service contracts:
- Two maintenance visits per year to ready your system for the heating and cooling seasons
- Discounts on service calls after hours
- A 10 percent discount on all parts and repairs
- Priority scheduling
Discounts and Priority Service
A 10 percent discount on repairs or upgrades could be worth the cost of the maintenance contract alone. Being given priority service when your equipment breaks down is a benefit hard to quantify. These systems tend to fail when they’re running most frequently, which is when the weather is either extremely cold or hot.
Knowing you’ll get timely service not only gives you peace of mind, but it also shortens the time you’ll be without the comfort your HVAC system supplies. It might save you the cost of a hotel if you decide not to tough it out. If you stay at home, your system will be serviced more quickly.
