If you’ve ever heard your HVAC technician talk about a service agreement, but you aren’t sure what it is I will explain it for you.
When you get a new AC unit installed it can cost a ton of money.
Some people really want to have their HVAC technician take care of everything for them, so service contracts were created. When you get a service contract your HVAC technician will agree to come out and check on your AC unit or other unit a set amount of times per year. The HVAC technician will also use certified HVAC parts that are made to go in your system. If you don’t get a service agreement for your HVAC system you might end up spending a lot of money. One thing that can happen is that you forget to do regular maintenance on the AC unit and then you have to call an HVAC technician and pay a bunch of money. I recommend that you make sure to pay the upfront cost for the service contract and know that your HVAC technician will come even if you forget. You will still have to change your air filters for your heating and cooling system, but other than that there isn’t much more you will need to do. When an air conditioner or furnace is running at its peak efficiency you end up saving a lot of money. That’s one of the energy saving tips I learned last time I replaced my HVAC system. If the HVAC technician doesn’t include service contracts I would say they might not be too trustworthy and you should look somewhere else.
