We’ve all had those moments where we’ve saved a critical matter for the very last moment, causing us to stress and worry far more than needed. If only we had just thought ahead… In the case of air conditioners, we’re referring to that moment when it breaks down in the middle of a hot summer day. Compound that with all your other daily and weekly priorities, and you’ve got a significant speedbump on your hands.
So what’s the answer? Is it to create a schedule and call for maintenance early? No, even easier! A maintenance plan lets you forget about all things related to your AC. But that’s not the only benefit available to maintenance plan members.
Avoid Repair Costs
One of the best reasons for getting a maintenance plan is for the savings you’ll get year-round by avoiding repair costs. You only need maintenance once or twice a year, but just those two visits will save you plenty in the long-run. This makes some people wonder why they can’t just wait for their AC to have problems, calling a Plano, TX air conditioning service only on an “as-needed” basis.
Here’s why it’s a bad idea to wait for your AC to break down:
- Breakdowns are unpredictable, so you can’t know if your repair problem is going to cost you far more than you anticipated.
- 80% of AC issues are prevented through maintenance. Get it checked and forget about it until next year.
- Neglecting regular maintenance can void the manufacturer’s warranty on your machine, which can be a big problem if you find out too late that you need to use that warranty.
But what about all the times of the year where you don’t need maintenance?
For the rest of the year, a good maintenance plan promises to be there for you when you need it most. If your AC still needs repairs even after regular maintenance, it will be the duty of the HVAC contractor to address that problem as soon as possible.
Being a “priority customer” means access to 24/7 emergency services, and a guaranteed 24-hour response time. Whatever the emergency is, no matter what time of day, you can rest easy knowing your problems will quickly be fixed. Plus, you can forget about the additional charges you’d normally receive for overtime or for direct consultations with a service technician.
For being a member of a maintenance plan, you can also get access to extended guarantees offered by the HVAC contractor. These go beyond the manufacturer’s warranty and are often more flexible. For example, our maintenance plan offers no charge for the replacement of your air conditioner if it breaks down twice in the first three years.
If the regular maintenance of the maintenance plan fails to cover all your needs, these types of guarantees can give you peace of mind that anything that happens to your AC will be taken care of without delay.
