An HVAC unit helps improve indoor air quality and home comfort. Most people run this unit constantly, which subjects it to malfunctions and other potential troubles. Some HVAC issues also affect its efficiency, which impacts your utility bills. If the HVAC unit breaks down in the middle of summer or winter, it can put your family at high risk, especially if you have young children or live with the elderly.
To avoid such problems, it’s a good idea to sign up for a membership plan. Such an arrangement means that you get into a contract with an HVAC company, and you pay a fee for services and regular inspections. Signing up for a maintenance plan will keep your unit in top shape all yearlong. Here are more reasons why you should consider an HVAC membership plan.
1. It Helps Maintain Warranty Coverage
Note that most manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance once you submit a claim under warranty. Therefore, neglecting tune-ups can void your warranty. For busy homeowners, you can easily forget to schedule HVAC servicing.
Once your unit develops issues and you have not kept up with your maintenance, you may have to cover the repair or replacement costs. Devoting a specific amount to HVAC upkeep will protect you from costly repairs that your warranty could otherwise cover. Once you sign up for a maintenance plan, you can schedule tune-ups with Tarpy Plumbing, Heating & Air at times that are convenient to your busy schedule. With a little preplanning, you will never have to worry about missing appointments or compromising your warranty.
2. It’s a Cost-Effective HVAC Maintenance Plan
The cost of paying for an HVAC membership plan is significantly lower than other voluntary costs. The program covers routine inspections and services and filter changes twice each year. This makes the value of the services offered under the maintenance plan substantially higher than what you are asked to pay.
Because we offer filter changes twice a year, you can rest assured that you’re getting better performance and better air quality because your filters are clean and functioning well. This means that your furnace is running more efficiently and using less energy, saving you money on your monthly utility services.
In addition, cleaner filters means that you’re breathing cleaner air, mitigating airborne illnesses and allergens from affecting your health. Better health means fewer visits to doctors, lower or no medical bills, and less money spent, making your regular maintenance services very cost-effective.
3. You Will Have Greater Peace of Mind
Investing in an HVAC membership plan gives you the confidence that you will have a technician fix your unit immediately to avoid inconveniences. The fact that the technicians also perform regular tune-ups will give you peace of mind knowing that your HVAC unit will work at its best and safest. Our team of professionals at Tarpy Plumbing, Heating & Air can help you with any of your HVAC questions and concerns.
4. You Will Enjoy Comfortable Indoor Conditions All Yearlong
During servicing, the technician will check the unit for loose connections, fix them, lubricate moving parts, and repair minor issues before they escalate into significant problems. This will reduce the odds that your unit will malfunction in the middle of the season. A well-maintained HVAC system distributes warm and cool air evenly in all rooms in your house to improve your comfort level throughout the year.
Also, a technician from Tarpy Plumbing, Heating & Air often cleans the unit and changes the filters to eliminate contaminants. Note that the HVAC unit tends to accumulate and recirculate dust, pollen, and pet dander indoors when neglected. Such pollutants can trigger allergies and asthma attacks. Therefore, it’s worth paying an annual fee for maintenance to create a healthier environment for your loved ones.
5. Your HVAC Unit Will Serve You Longer
An HVAC system is a substantial investment that you will want to protect at all costs. If you fail to keep up with tune-ups, your system might break down sooner than expected, and you may end up having to buy a new unit. When you invest in a maintenance plan, you will receive regular tune-up visits. An experienced technician can easily spot points of weakness and address issues once they occur and before they damage the entire unit. A well-maintained HVAC system can serve you for an average of 15 years.
6. The Unit Will Run More Efficiently
Once you sign up for a maintenance plan, Tarpy Plumbing, Heating & Air will be responsible for keeping your unit functioning efficiently all yearlong. You will have one of our professional team members clean the unit often to improve airflow. We will also fix leaks in the ductwork to prevent energy loss.
Note that once an HVAC system accumulates dirt, the system will have to work harder and will run longer to maintain the set temperature. Consequently, the unit draws more energy, resulting in high energy bills. A well-maintained HVAC unit can help decrease your energy expenses by as much as 30%.
7. It Helps Keep Your Home Safe
Signing up for an HVAC membership plan can be a vital home safety measure. If your HVAC unit stops working during the winter, it can cause pipes to burst and water damage, leading to expensive repairs and replacements. Extreme temperature fluctuations can also affect the structural integrity of your house, which is a problem that can be very costly to correct.
By signing up for a maintenance plan, you will avoid such inconveniences. Regular maintenance also protects your family from the risks of carbon monoxide leaks. The unit’s heat exchanger can crack and leak gas if you fail to keep up with tune-ups. Note that exposure to even low levels of carbon monoxide can cause adverse health issues. When under a maintenance plan, a professional will be in your home twice per year to detect any potential hazards and to safeguard your loved ones against any HVAC risks.
8. You’ll Work With a Team You Can Trust
Homeowners without an HVAC membership plan end up selecting the first service provider they come across. This increases the risks of overspending on inferior workmanship.
When you sign up for a maintenance plan with Tarpy Plumbing, Heating & Air, we will be accountable for the jobs performed, so we guarantee quality. You will have a company to rely on whether you need emergency services or routine inspections. As your contract continues, you will get to know the members of our team, and we will get to know you and understand your HVAC system thoroughly. This familiarity will allow us to deliver personalized services that cater to your unique needs.
