Sometimes, it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. You’ve got so much to worry about, but HVAC maintenance doesn’t have to stress you out.
You can scratch that off your to-do list each year if you plan for and understand the importance of an HVAC maintenance agreement. These are often overlooked, but they can be a stress reliever and help you focus on other things.
The following are some benefits of obtaining a commercial HVAC maintenance agreement.
A Closer Look at These Agreements
In essence, a commercial HVAC maintenance agreement is a contract between the HVAC maintenance company and you. They are offering you regular HVAC system inspections and maintenance as part of that agreement.
We’re going to perform deep inspections and regular tune-ups. If there’s an issue or any part that needs to be replaced, we’ll make sure it’s done in a timely matter.
The responsibility of knowing when inspections or repairs are needed is no longer yours with this agreement in place. The HVAC maintenance company takes this responsibility on for you and contacts you to get these tasks done for you.
Benefits of Adopting a Commercial HVAC Maintenance Agreement
We want you to understand not only what these agreements are but what they can do for you. The following are some perks of signing these sorts of contracts:
It would be nice if an HVAC system, or any mechanical system, lasted forever.
Sadly, that’s not the case. The reality is that your HVAC could fail at some point, even faster when it’s not taken care of, and a professional HVAC technician can help with this routine maintenance.
At Delaware Heating and Air, we know the importance of early detection, such as the following:
- Help avoid major repairs
- Prevent high-cost repairs
- Faster maintenance jobs
- Save more money
- Prevent a broken HVAC system
Some people don’t think this is all that important, and if they do, they often forget about it. This is the reason an HVAC maintenance contract makes sense.
Having an HVAC technician check your system means you can rest a little easier; it’ll be on us to come when the time is right and ensure your system is in tip-top condition.
It’ll be on the technicians to perform the preventative maintenance that can keep your system running for a long time without an issue. Preventative maintenance is involved; it should include some of the following performances:
- Check loose electrical connections.
- Identify low refrigerant levels.
- Free up clogged condensate drains.
- Address issues with poor air quality.
- Lubricate moving parts, like the blower.
Performing all of these steps should keep the HVAC system running. It should also extend the life of your HVAC system.
A commercial HVAC plan could help cut downtime by up to 35 percent. Thanks to early detection and regular deep inspections to prevent unexpected breakdowns.
When a system is maintained, your HVAC system may last between 15 to 25 years. A professional HVAC technician can help you achieve this goal to get the most out of your investment.
Better Energy Efficiency
Not worrying about big repairs means fewer headaches, fewer worries, and it means more inner peace for commercial system owners; that’s all they need, but entering into this type of agreement goes beyond early detection.
It goes beyond reducing the chances of dealing with costly repairs; it improves your systems’ energy usage. When a device isn’t performing optimally, it starts to take a toll, and your monthly energy bill feels it.
You’ll spend a little more each year. Maybe you won’t notice it at the beginning, but what you spend adds up given enough time, and no one wants to pay more than they have to.
As mentioned, a technician performs tune-ups, but that’s not all; your technician is also services furnace burners and heat exchangers.
The technician will also check your filter and make sure it doesn’t need to be replaced. Making sure your filter is replaced at the right time ensures that your air quality stays good. This is a great thing, especially for those who are sensitive to air pollutants.
The evaporator coils and the condenser are also inspected to make sure they’re not making your HVAC work harder than it needs to.
Thanks to a commercial HVAC maintenance agreement, you could look at an energy consumption cut of up to 30 percent, which is a considerable amount.
Earning Priority Service
At some point, you’re going to need emergency services. Sure, preventative maintenance reduces the need for emergency services, but it still can happen. One thing clients enjoy is priority service.
That’s a major perk that folks appreciate because it means you won’t have to wait too long to have your HVAC system up and running again.
The last thing you want to hear is that you’ll have to wait a long time to have a technician come to you to fix your problem in the middle of a heatwave or when it’s freezing outdoors. During these times, HVAC technicians get the most calls.
It makes sense though. Folks use their HVAC systems more. If something was wrong with their systems, this is when issues will pop up. HVAC systems tend to fail when it’s used excessively.
Without a contract, you’ll likely have to worry about long waits, which are regrettable. Technicians do their best to get to everyone at some point but do prioritize folks who have a contract with them.
Priority service includes 24-hour emergency services if something dire happens, but it also includes regular visits. Knowing that you’re getting priority service should give you the kind of peace of mind everyone deserves.
You’ll love to know that having a contract with your HVAC service providers includes perks, as mentioned earlier. A lot of people put off emergency services because they’re afraid of the cost, but you won’t be one of those people; you don’t have to be.
It’s almost like being a member of a good loyalty club. It’s something we’re proud to offer and something our clients love. You no longer have to worry about burning through your wallet because you need to take care of your HVAC system.
Equipment Warranty Check
Warranties are great to have. Having one means you don’t have to worry about paying for a particular part if it fails. All you have to worry about is the labor, and you’re already getting a discount there.
The problem is that warranties are a little tricky. Yes, manufacturers offer warranties to folks, but those warranties come with a lot of fine print. Most of the time, the fine print includes something about maintaining the part. If you fail to do so, you end up forfeiting your warranty.
The moment you want to claim it, they bring that up and you get nothing. You end up paying for the part, which is no good. The good thing with our contract is that you don’t have to worry about that because the technician will maintain the entire system.
You’ll have the receipts of everything that’s been done, so they won’t be able to say that. These companies will have to honor the warranty, and that means you’ll end up getting the part without purchasing it all over again.
Having that peace of mind is priceless, and that’s what you get with commercial HVAC maintenance agreements. Manufacturer warranties usually ask that you repair and maintain their parts at least two times every year, and you get that plus so much more.
