I want a guarantee that my heating and cooling system will not malfunction when I need it most. I’ve found that the best way to ensure reliability is to schedule proactive service from a licensed HVAC professional. I also make sure to replace the air filters in the furnace and air conditioner every month or so. I never used to be conscientious about proactive measures. After paying for some expensive repairs, I enrolled in a maintenance plan with a local HVAC contractor. I have an HVAC expert check all the various components and tune anything that needs it. The technician cleans everything and makes sure the central heating and cooling system is in peak condition before the start of the season; By doing this, I can depend on the furnace and air conditioner to maintain ideal temperature and air quality. I don’t need to worry about safety or health issues. I can trust that the HVAC system is operating at maximum efficiency levels, and I spend less on utility bills. I signed up with an HVAC company that stands behind their work with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. They offer priority scheduling, a discount on parts and labor and emergency service without overtime charges. They also call me to remind me to schedule service each season. They fulfill all of the requirements for my manufacturer’s warranty and complete the work quickly and with no damage to my home. The maintenance plan is not overly expensive and I’ve definitely recovered the investment. The benefits of HVAC upkeep continue to add up as I enjoy longer service life from the system.
