Is It Worth It to Sign Up for a Maintenance Plan?

woman's hands writing in scheduleThe short answer to this question is “yes.” But, we don’t expect you to take that at face value. To truly understand the benefits of a comprehensive Lawrenceville, GA AC maintenance plan, you need to understand the advantages of maintenance itself, and when maintenance is best performed.

Generally speaking, we recommend scheduling your maintenance sessions before your HVAC systems’ heaviest periods of use. For your air conditioner, this means in the springtime. For your heater, this means in the fall. But more important than when you schedule this service is how often you schedule it.

For most air conditioner and heaters, once a year—for each system—is sufficient. For a year-round heat pump system, though, you’ll want to schedule a tune-up every 6 months.

Enrolling in a Maintenance Plan

Signing up for our maintenance program will afford you many benefits. First off, when you sign up for a program you do not need to remember to schedule the service each year—we’ll take care of that. In addition, yearly tune-ups will afford you:

A More Reliable Air Conditioner: This is perhaps the most immediate benefits of routine preventive maintenance for your air conditioner—it will be more dependable over the life of the cooling system. The last thing you want is an AC system at risk of failing during the hottest day of the year (the same can be said for a furnace during the coldest day of the year).

Maintenance allows our professionally trained technicians to tune up and clean your AC system, locate any potential problem areas, and give you the peace of mind that your air conditioner has been thoroughly checked for any outstanding repair needs.

Extended Lifespan: An air conditioner that fails years before its estimated service life means a premature replacement for you—which equates to you spending a lot more money than you had planned on. If you want a good return on investment for your AC system and want it to last as long as possible, then it’s vital that you have maintenance done regularly.

Year-Round Energy Savings: The wear and tear on your conditioner, as well as your heater, throughout the year eventually adds up to a drop in system efficiency. On average, an HVAC system loses 5% of its energy efficiency for each year it misses maintenance. It won’t take long before your utility bills are much higher than they should be.

Regularly scheduled maintenance can keep your systems running at 95% of their initial efficiency throughout its entire service life, keeping your energy bills down no matter what season it is.

Additional Maintenance Plan Benefits

When you enroll in our maintenance plan, you’ll be afforded a number of exclusive benefits not available to non-plan members. This includes priority service within 24 hours, significant discounts on repairs, a discounted diagnostic fee, free standard filter replacements, and more.

We’ll be happy to discuss the details of our maintenance plan further with you—give us a call!
