5 Reasons a Service Contract Makes Sense & Saves Money

As stated by the  CDC, HVAC systems can be a big source of indoor pollutants. Improperly maintained systems can lead to the introduction of microbes into an indoor air system. Improper operation and maintenance of HVAC systems can seriously impact a building’s indoor environmental quality (IEQ). It can also be the cause of other detrimental issues. A Severn Group service contract makes sense because it is a cost-efficient, convenient way to ensure a building’s HVAC system is properly maintained. The following five reasons explain why a service contract is the right choice.

1.  Prevention Is Less Costly Than Repairs

If an HVAC system starts to fail, expenses can be considerable. Regular maintenance means small issues are identified early and can be fixed before they cause more significant problems. It can be easy to lose track of when you last scheduled maintenance, resulting in skipped or overdue inspections.

A service contract helps ensure that inspections and maintenance take place regularly. Preventative maintenance can save a considerable amount of money, thus paying for the contract itself.

Regular maintenance and timely repairs will extend the life of an HVAC system, saving money long term. A regular maintenance schedule will also result in fewer emergencies and system failures.

2.  You Get Priority Scheduling and Service

HVAC systems can be complex. That being the case, there is an advantage to working with a designated technician. A service contract implies you’ll have a specific technician for your account. That can save a lot of time and effort, as the technician will become very familiar with your system

Customers covered by service contracts also get priority service. This is one of the best ways to ensure quick assistance in an HVAC emergency.

3.  Improved Unit Efficiency and Dependability

It is never a good situation when an HVAC system fails just when you need it most. A lack of air conditioning in the summer or heat in the winter can cause a great deal of inconvenience, discomfort, and even damage.

A service contract means your HVAC system will be on a regular tune-up schedule. This regular maintenance and inspection will significantly reduce the likelihood of unexpected system failures. There is great peace of mind that comes with knowing your HVAC will function properly year-round.

4.  Better Air Quality

A better running HVAC system naturally equates to healthier indoor air quality. Filter maintenance and replacement are important to maintaining or improving your air quality. Regular inspections and maintenance will ensure that essential tasks like these proceed on schedule.

Scheduled inspection of cooling coils, air ducts, and drain pans will help your technician identify minor issues quickly. Technicians can take measures to stop the problems in their tracks. Maintenance will help reduce the chances of moisture collecting and microbial growth occurring. This results in fewer air impurities and better overall air quality. That creates a win-win situation for overall system performance and healthier air for building occupants.

5.  Reduced Energy Costs

Service contracts can pay for themselves due to savings on repairs and energy costs. A poorly maintained HVAC system almost always runs in a very inefficient manner. Inefficient operation directly correlates to higher operation and energy costs. Regular maintenance means a prompt resolution of issues. This in turn will keep your HVAC running at peak performance, thus resulting in lower energy consumption.
