Learn All the Ins and Outs of Today’s HVAC Contracts

HVAC contracts offered by a certified HVAC dealer promote maximum system reliability through regular inspections and manufacturer-recommended maintenance. These services, provided in the terms of maintenance agreements, support the reliability and performance of your air conditioner and furnace, which are, of course, major investments in any home. Benefits are typically available in several levels at a range of affordable prices.

Positive aspects of HVAC contracts with a reputable contractor include:

  • Early diagnosis. Annual service on the AC and furnace allow a professional technician to identify any minor, incipient issues before they turn into major malfunctions. Early detection avoids the unexpected loss of heating or cooling and often means a less-expensive repair.
  • Lower operating costs. An HVAC unit’s efficiency rating is not written in stone. Without regular inspections and maintenance procedures, system efficiency may decline over time, electricity and gas consumption may rise, and monthly heating and cooling costs will likely increase.
  • Longer component life. The estimated service life of HVAC equipment depends on manufacturer-recommended service by a qualified, professional technician. If service is neglected, expensive components — and eventually the entire unit — will require early replacement.
  • Warranty compliance. Most AC and furnace warranties require annual preventive maintenance by a certified HVAC contractor. Without proof of regular maintenance, the cost of labor and parts to repair an HVAC unit may fall entirely on the homeowner.

Typical HVAC Contracts

An HVAC maintenance contract typically offers a choice of levels, from basic coverage up to comprehensive protection.

  • Basic coverage usually offers seasonal inspection and preventive maintenance on the home’s heating and cooling units. There’s no charge for overtime work and there’s a 15% discount on most needed repairs.
  • Mid-level coverage adds free labor on covered work 24 hours a day, plus the standard free overtime and 15% repair discount. This level is typically available after the customer has been covered by the basic agreement for at least one year.
  • The top level in maintenance agreements includes all of the above plus free replacement or repair of covered parts as needed.
