Does it make sense to get a service contract for heating and cooling systems?

DDLC Energy Offers Heating & Cooling Service Agreements for Maintenance, Cleaning, Tune-Ups, and Repairs

It Always Happens At The Worst Time…

If you are one of millions of homeowners who live in areas with dramatic weather swings (such as the northeast!), you are fully aware of the importance of maintaining your heat during the cold months, and air conditioner during the warm months. It seems that it is always during the most extreme weather that you are in desperate need of air conditioning repair or heating system repair. This is generally because of the strain on the system that the extreme weather places on the unit.

Routine Maintenance Saves You Money

Heating and cooling system service agreements off routine maintenance to protect your system, and generally save you money in the long run. You can take comfort in knowing that preventive maintenance and annual cleanings are covered. Additionally, if the system becomes damaged or breaks down, emergency service for heating system repair and air conditioning repair will get you back up and running as soon as possible. Service contract customers often receive priority service over non contract customers.

What Type of Systems Benefit Most From Service Contracts?

Heating equipment service contracts and air conditioning equipment service contracts are especially beneficial to older systems but can also be very helpful to newer homes. The first call to action would be to contact DDLC Energy for a consultation and ask for information on service agreements versus individual oil-fired heating systems repair, furnace repair, boiler maintenance, oil tank repair, and other maintenance and repairs. You may be surprised at the savings, should you need emergency service. Furnace maintenance and cooling system tune-up are a part of the preventive maintenance that makes the service worthwhile for many Americans. Keeping up on these things on your own can prove complicated, dangerous, and a hassle.

Expensive Repairs Could Possibly Be Prevented

Finding out that your heating or cooling system needs a good cleaning isn’t the worst that could happen. Finding out your air conditioner needs to be replaced because it has never been properly maintained or cleaned is a different story altogether. With some air conditioning systems costing close to $10,000, that is quite a financial blow. For some homeowners, that would require a home equity loan or refinance just to stay cool during the summer. Routine maintenance and inspections can spot problems before they start, and ensure your system lasts longer!

Trust the Leading Company For Your Home

Always keep in mind that just because they have a business name in the phone book or are listed in Google, it does not mean they are a reputable and reliable company to hire. Doing your homework can save a lot of heartache when it comes to allowing a stranger into your home and giving them permission to work on expensive appliances.
