Protect Your HVAC System Investment with an Annual Maintenance Agreement

Posted On: January 01, 2014

Annual maintenance agreements can help you save money on your utility bills. Just as with a car or other piece of equipment, the better you care for it, the longer it will last. Typical annual maintenance agreements cover two inspections — one for the air conditioner and one for the furnace. These are usually done before the peak heating and cooling seasons.

Having your HVAC equipment regularly maintained can help it remain efficient while prolonging its life.  This further explains the benefits of having routine preventive maintenance performed on your HVAC system:

1. Increased efficiency. Issues such as low coolant levels, clogged condensate drains and many other problems are easily spotted during an inspection. These types of problems can also reduce the efficiency of your system, which of course can make your utility bills go up.

2. Increased longevity. A lot of big problems have their roots in much smaller problems. When you can catch those problems in time, you can save a lot of money on the repairs.

3. A lot of factory warranties require that annual maintenance be performed in order for the warranty claim to be honored.

4. Increased convenience. With automatic scheduling, you don’t have to remember to schedule an appointment for a technician to come out and perform an inspection. They will call you to set up an appointment. Additionally, we offer priority service for our customers with an annual maintenance agreement in place.

Having an annual maintenance agreement makes sense for homeowners in southwest Illinois, including Greenville, Troy and Collinsville. Call Ernst Heating and Cooling today to find out more about our maintenance agreements or other home comfort related questions.
