HVAC Service Agreements: Top 3 Reason to Invest

Are you tired of experiencing problems with your HVAC system when you least expect it? The primary function of an HVAC system is to provide comfort for everyone in your home.

Unfortunately, while this system may be essential, it is not immune to breakdowns, wear, or tear. It’s no secret that homeowners spend a substantial amount of money on fixing their systems whenever they break down. These unexpected costs can add up quickly. We added them up here if you’re curious. Sometimes the only solution is to replace the entire unit. That’s the most costly option of all.

 So, what’s a better solution? A service agreement!

A service agreement is a contract that outlines how often an HVAC technician will inspect your equipment, perform maintenance, provide repairs and what perks you can receive. Yes, we understand that investing in a service agreement requires some form of financial commitment, but it’s a small price to pay compared to what you can receive in return. 

The question is: what exactly can you get out of a service agreement?

We’ll explore all that and more as we cover the top three reasons you should invest in a service agreement with a reputable HVAC company. 

Note: If you’re unsure about selecting a reliable HVAC service provider, check out our pro tips here

1. You’ll receive needed regular maintenance.

Investing in a service agreement for your HVAC system is a smart move with several top-notch benefits. One of the best reasons to go for it is the regular maintenance your system will receive. 

Just like you go for a check-up with your doctor, your HVAC system also needs checkups. We recommend you schedule these maintenance checkups at least twice a year (other experts agree with us.)

With a service agreement, you can lock in maintenance inspections twice a year, in the spring and fall. These are essential for staying ahead of any potential issues. The right HVAC contractor will reach out to you when the specified time of year rolls around to get your system’s checkup on the calendar. All you’ll need to do is say yes. 

Being proactive rather than reactive is the key here! While regular maintenance won’t predict every single issue (unfortunately, it’s not a crystal ball.), it can help catch and fix minor problems before they turn into major headaches.

So, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your HVAC system is in the hands of experts who can keep it running smoothly and extend its lifespan. In most cases, a neglected HVAC system can pose severe safety risks to your family and household, and it could break down at any inconvenient moment. This agreement helps you expect the unexpected.

We know that service agreements are not one size fits all. Take a look at our agreement here to see if it’s right for you. If not, please consider searching elsewhere for one. Just make sure it’s with a reputable company that will follow up on the terms. 

2. You’ll gain priority scheduling.

When it comes to HVAC system maintenance, timing is key. With a service agreement, you can take advantage of priority scheduling to ensure prompt assistance.

At Rod Miller, we understand the importance of timely service, so we offer a 24-hour turnaround for our service agreement customers. You become our top priority when you’re part of our service agreement program. If you need immediate assistance, give us an emergency call, and we’ll make sure to head your way within 24 hours. No more waiting for an appointment for days or weeks in the heat or cold. We value your time and strive to provide prompt and reliable service. 

Another perk of our service agreement (and other agreements if they’re worth your investment) is that you won’t have to worry about paying overtime charges. We know that unexpected issues can arise at any time. Depending on your agreement plan level, we make sure to address them promptly after hours and on weekends without incurring any additional costs for overtime.

Many HVAC repairs take 30 minutes to an hour. But some can span four hours or more. We want to make HVAC system maintenance as convenient and affordable as possible for you.

3. You’ll take advantage of all the discounts.

Homeowners with a service agreement can enjoy exclusive benefits, including coupons and discounts that can help save on costs. With a service agreement, you won’t have to worry about paying for parts or labor separately. 

We strive to provide our service agreement customers with added perks. They receive special discounts on parts, helping minimize out-of-pocket expenses.

With the current inflation and manufacturer shortages affecting the costs of HVAC parts, having a service agreement can be a significant advantage for homeowners. 

With our service agreements and a premium labor plan, you won’t have to pay for the service technician’s labor cost either. This means that if any repairs or replacements are needed during the maintenance visits, you won’t have to pay for the time it takes.

Imagine facing a sudden repair bill of $2000 for your HVAC system without a service agreement. However, with a service agreement in place, that same repair could cost you as little as $700. That’s a substantial savings that can make a big difference in your budget.
