Annual Service Agreements - Maintenance to keep your air conditioners and furnaces operating effeciently

Annual Service Agreements

Annual Service Agreements are designed to extend the service life of air conditioning and heating equipment, and keep them running safely and efficiently. A typical service agreement should provide for a minimum of 2 visits per year (Spring and Fall) by a qualified technician who uses a routine check list to track the performance of your system. Discounts on repairs and emergency service are often extended to service agreement customers. Our annual service agreement offers both a generous discount, and an accounting of your system's past performance.

Benefits of Scheduled Maintenance

Ever heard "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? That saying is especially true when it comes to air conditioning and heating systems. Having me provide scheduled maintenance for your air conditioning and heating units can:

dot $$ reduce energy bills;
dot $$ reduce repair bills;
dot prevent untimely breakdowns;
dot assure safe equipment operation; and
dot defer replacement costs by prolonging equipment life.

Why Do I Need Maintenance If My System Is Working?

Many problems are identified during routine maintenance that are quick and inexpensive to eliminate, and save hundreds of dollars in operating and repair costs. For instance, a faulty compressor capacitor will cause your unit to use up to 30% more electricity and compressor overheating. Unchecked, this results in higher utility bills and possible compressor failure. The cost of operating your unit in this condition for two months would exceed the cost of the repair!

Do I Need My System Checked Every Year?

In North Georgia, central air conditioning units run over a 1,000 hours per year to cool our homes. If you were to drive your automobile for 1,000 hours in one year at today's speed limit, you would have driven 70,000 miles. You wouldn't think of leaving on a journey like that without making sure everything was in tiptop condition and your gas mileage was at its best. It's pretty incredible that our air conditioners can give us up to 25 years of service under conditions like that, when properly maintained.
