The Importance of a Heating & Cooling Maintenance Agreement
Like your vehicle, your heating and cooling system requires regular maintenance to continue running correctly. If routine maintenance and tune-ups are ignored, you could find yourself looking at major repair or replacement costs down the road. A comprehensive maintenance agreement helps you prevent these costly repairs and gives you additional discounts on services and replacements.
Manufacturers’ warranties are great but… Many people believe they do not need a maintenance agreement because their furnace, heat pump or air conditioner is still covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. While a warranty is great to have in case of a manufacturing defect, these warranties typically only cover the parts, not the labor.
Your manufacturer’s warranty may be voided by:
- Improper installation
- Not being serviced by a professional
- Lack of upkeep
In addition, warranties from the manufacturer usually require that a trained specialist diagnose the problem. If the HVAC specialist determines that the problem with the part was due to one of the items listed above, the warranty will not cover the replacement.
How does a maintenance agreement work?
The bottom line is manufacturers’ warranties are limited. This is where it becomes important to have a maintenance agreement that helps cover labor as well. Since manufacturers’ warranties typically require a certified HVAC technician services your unit, a maintenance agreement compliments a warranty.
With a maintenance agreement, your heater and air conditioner receive the important regular tune-ups required to keep your manufacturer’s warranty valid. Your tune-ups are included and you enjoy priority service.
