Is a Heating and Cooling System Service Contract Really Necessary?

Heating & Cooling Service Agreements for Maintenance, Cleaning, Tune-Ups, and Repairs by Automatic TLC Can Bring You Piece of Mind 

No one enjoys being miserable in their own home… 

It always seems that it is during the most extreme weather that you are in desperate need of air conditioning repair or heating system repair. If you are one of millions of homeowners who live in areas with dramatic weather swings, you are fully aware of the importance of maintaining your heat during the cold months, and air conditioner during the warm months. 

Maintaining your system helps save money

The best way to maintain your heating and cooling systems is through service agreements. This means that you can take comfort in knowing that preventive maintenance and the annual cleaning is covered. Additionally, if the system does become 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. With many companies, service contract holders receive priority repair service in emergencies. 

Finding a reputable company is imperative

What are the benefits to a service contract? 

There are many service options to consider, such as the ‘hire-when-you-need-it’ type. The problem with this, is that the issue you have may be a problem that could have been prevented with maintenance. Air conditioning duct cleaning, for example, can impede on the efficiency of your AC unit. If you wait until there is a noticeable change in your air, you may have waited too long and caused other problems with your system. With a service contract, you can have all the maintenance scheduled on a routine basis, along with routine inspections to ensure properly functioning equipment throughout the year.

An Estimate Is A Good Place to Start… 

There is no harm in getting information. Calling an expert to give a consultation and perhaps an initial inspection to estimate your specific needs will better assist in getting you the level of comfort and assurance you are looking for. Ask questions, read the fine print, and don’t overextend yourself. These are key points when finalizing your contract, to make certain you are happy with the agreement as well as the service the company provides. By agreeing to services you don’t want or need, it will only cause problems later, and ultimately you will be unhappy. Automatic TLC wants happy customers!
