Are HVAC Maintenance Contracts Worth The Money?

For over 70 years, Puyallup Heating & Air Conditioning has been helping the residents of Puyallup and the southern Puget Sound area keep their homes comfortable throughout the year. Our skilled technicians have worked with hundreds of heating and cooling systems of every make and model.

If there is one thing that we would want our customers to know, it is the importance of annual maintenance for your home-comfort equipment. Nevertheless, we have customers who try to skip this vital service to save a little money. The long-term financial benefits of a maintenance contract far outweigh any short-term gains of going without it. When you become a preferred customer at Puyallup Heating & Air Conditioning by signing onto one of our contracts, you will see significant savings over the long haul.

Benefits for Your Heating System

Your furnace works hard during the winter months to keep your home comfortable. Over time, the heat and vibration of regular operation will cause it to work less efficiently. You may notice that you use more fuel to maintain your home.

During an annual inspection, our technicians will check out your whole system and make the small adjustments that will keep it running at its best. They will replace clogged filters that can restrict airflow. They will clean and tune the burner assembly, making certain that it is firing properly. When your burner is properly tuned, there will be less wasted fuel, and it will produce fewer pollutants. Not only can our annual tune-up help decrease your carbon footprint, but it could also decrease your monthly utility bills.

During this service appointment, our technicians will also examine your flue pipe and ductwork. When we inspect your flue pipe, we can be certain that exhaust from the combustion process is properly vented outdoors. This will prevent unpleasant fumes and dangerous carbon monoxide buildup in your home. By visually inspecting the air ducts of your home, we can prevent wasted energy due to air leaks in the system. Less wasted heat means less wasted money for you.

Cooling System Benefits

During the summer months, it is your air conditioning system’s turn to work hard. A central air conditioning system includes equipment that stays outside throughout the year. This means that dust and dirt can accumulate in the unit, lowering its power and efficiency.

When we inspect your air conditioner, we will make certain that the condenser coil and evaporating coil are both clean and ready for action. We will also check the level of refrigerant to be sure that it is ready for another season of cool comfort. Once again, a well-tuned system costs less to operate.

Peace of Mind

A huge advantage to regular maintenance is our ability to prevent small problems that may grow and cause the system to fail in the middle of the season. When it is time for your inspection, our experts will test every electrical connection and component to avoid unexpected malfunctions.

No one wants to deal with an emergency furnace repair in the middle of a cold winter night or an air conditioner malfunction on a holiday weekend. Handling simple repairs at a scheduled appointment avoids the inconvenience and extra charges of an emergency call.

After working with so many systems in the Puget Sound area, our technicians know the common signs of wear and tear. If we can replace worn parts before the season begins, it can prevent a system failure later on. If you have an annual maintenance agreement with us, any repairs we make will come to you with a 15% discount.

Long-Term Savings

As a preferred customer at Puyallup Heating & Air Conditioning, you will experience several long-term financial benefits. Every season that we maintain your comfort systems, you potentially have a lower cost of operation. The improved operation and regular upkeep will lead to longer system life. Finally, when the time comes to replace your heating or cooling system, you will have a discounted rate on the new equipment.
