Your heating and cooling systems require frequent maintenance and servicing in order to function properly. If neglected, it could lead to a major replacement or repair costs of your HVAC systems. Therefore, a maintenance agreement or a service contract is issued by the HVAC companies in order to prevent any damage or repair of your equipment. This legal agreement consists of several perks and discounts which can significantly vary from one manufacturer to another. There are several companies that offer a year round service and greatly reduce the unexpected repair charges.
Most of us believe that when we have a manufacturer warranty, we do not need the maintenance agreement but the truth is that the service contract definitely helps you to avoid costly repairs in the future. A warranty can only cover certain repairs and defective parts whereas the maintenance costs are covered under this agreement. According to the maintenance agreement, there are regular check-ups of the heating and cooling systems which in turn can reduce your utility bills by improving the efficiency of your systems. With prioritized schedules, you receive quality and guaranteed service that ensures better performance and safe operation of your equipment.
