The majority of the homes we service have central HVAC systems. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems work together through a series of air ducts to both heat and cool your home.
To understand how important maintenance is for your HVAC unit, think of it like your vehicle.
They’re both complex systems made up of a series of mechanical components. If one or more components of your vehicle or Central HVAC system are not working correctly, the entire system can malfunction.
Most of us understand that without routine maintenance on our vehicles, we’ll end up with some very costly repair bills, or have to replace the vehicle entirely. Central HVAC systems are no different. They require routine maintenance to operate at peak performance as well.
Your central HVAC system may be running for 8-12 hours a day during peak heating and air conditioning seasons. That’s typically the top consumer of energy in your home. Systems that aren’t maintained will often have to work harder, consuming additional energy and adding stress to the operation of your heating and air conditioning system.
Unfortunately, we run into situations all the time where a Central HVAC system has been running for 5 or more years without ever having a maintenance performed. Can you imagine what could happen if you went five years without maintaining a vehicle? Would that vehicle be dependable for you when you needed it the most?
We passionately believe in the importance of maintenance for Central HVAC systems. Replacing a central HVAC system is a very large investment, and systems maintained properly can last up to twice as long as ones that aren’t.
How we handle preventive maintenance
Unlike most heating and air conditioning contractors in our market, we no longer sell any type of maintenance contracts. After visiting with our valued clients, we have decided contracts are not in the best interest of either party.
However, we will still reach out to clients to schedule maintenance services twice a year: once for the heating season and once for the cooling season. If you do not wish to be contacted, no problem! You are welcome to opt out from those communications whenever you choose. If you don’t want to do your maintenance each time we reach out, that is okay, too.
We don’t want to see anybody replacing their heating and air conditioning equipment prematurely. Proper maintenance is the key to longevity on what is typically one of the larger investments in a home.
What can you expect from us?
We will charge $99.95 per system for all of our heating and air conditioning maintenance services. Many homes will have one heater or furnace and one air conditioner (you will likely know if you have more than one of each in your home). There is no additional service fee charged for scheduled preventive maintenance services.
We’ll schedule air conditioner maintenance services in early spring. Furnace and heater maintenance services will be scheduled in the fall. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule in getting these services completed.
We will communicate about any points of concern we find during our maintenance services, and will even craft an upfront pricing proposal for the repairs, if any are needed. There will be no pressure for you to make those repairs at that time, but we will give you a 15% discount from our standard repair prices if you decide to move forward at that time.
If you decide to have those repairs completed at a later time, we will happily come out with no additional service fee charged and for the prices previously quoted to you in writing.
What if we have issues after the maintenance?
If you need a repair service on a system after we performed a maintenance service on it at any time during the following season, there will be not be a separate service fee charged for us to come back out and assess the situation. You will be given an upfront price for the repair needed.
This once-a-season maintenance service ensures you can breathe easy knowing your heater and air conditioner are in good hands, with no additional investment for unforeseen issues that may occur. We guarantee our preventive maintenance services will keep your heater or furnace and air conditioner running all season, or we will come back at no additional charge!
