The Top Six Reasons to Enroll in an HVAC Maintenance Contract

Your HVAC equipment is the key to home comfort and indoor air quality. The furnace and air conditioner work tirelessly in the background, heating, cooling, regulating the humidity and filtering your home's indoor air. Lots of homeowners take this functionality for granted until they have to do without them. If your AC has ever malfunctioned on a sweltering summer day, or the furnace has failed during a blizzard, you know what this is like firsthand.

No homeowner likes to deal with emergency repairs, high energy bills or home comfort problems. What if you had a way to guarantee a constant source of clean, climate controlled air when you need it most?

That’s where preventive HVAC maintenance comes in handy. Like getting an oil change for your car, regularly scheduled tune-ups are essential for keeping your HVAC system in good shape. And to get every benefit from each maintenance visit, you should look into applying for an HVAC maintenance contract.

This agreement is an arrangement between you and the HVAC contractor. Membership takes the guessing out of HVAC service by supplying routine maintenance, savings on repair work between scheduled appointments and other perks. An HVAC maintenance contract is not required to ask for tune-ups with Rob's Albertan Service Experts, but we highly endorse registering. Here are six reasons why.

1. Built-In Reminders to Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Life gets busier, so it’s easy to 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, check out these benefits:

  • Uncover small problems early: Issues with your home comfort system often develop slowly. When a technician examines the internal components annually, it’s possible to pinpoint and take care of small problems before they grow to be big headaches.
  • Reduce the risk of unexpected shutdowns: By tightening that loose fan belt and evening out the off-kilter blower motor during a maintenance call, the chance of a mid-season breakdown decreases.
  • Saving on repair costs: Routine HVAC maintenance is an affordable, foreseeable amount that minimizes the need for many major repairs.
  • Increase energy efficiency: The Department of Energy reports that yearly maintenance can increase HVAC efficiency by close to 30%, bringing down your heating and cooling bills at the same time.
  • Boost home comfort: When your home comfort system functions the way it is supposed to, airflow improves for even temperatures and more manageable humidity throughout the house.
  • Prolong the system’s life span: A clean, tuned-up, well-lubricated HVAC system can last years longer versus a neglected one, saving you on untimely replacement costs.
  • Guarantee safety: An equipment and safety evaluation during every visit offers peace of mind that your HVAC system is running safely.
  • Adhere to your warranty: The majority of HVAC manufacturers prioritize preventive maintenance to such a degree that they demand once-a-year tune-ups to keep your warranty active. Investing a little in upkeep now safeguards you from expensive repairs that your warranty would otherwise cover.

2. Priority Service

Having an HVAC maintenance contract puts you at the front of the line when you request an emergency repair. You can usually 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 heating and cooling system? An HVAC maintenance plan gives you access to the fastest installs possible, even during the busiest weeks.

4. Discounted Repairs and Services

Regular maintenance lowers the need for repair calls, but if your system needs some TLC, having an HVAC maintenance plan grants 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 unavoidable, but they can get costly fast. Thankfully, with an HVAC maintenance plan, you’ll never pay trip charges or overtime fees, even for emergency and after-hour service calls.

6. Repair Guarantee

How can you ensure the technician has executed 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, your technician will return to correct things.
