Homeowners are often presented with warranty and service plan options for various items and systems in their homes. Knowing when the investment is worth it is not always clear. HVAC service plans differ per company so it is important to look at what the contracts include before deciding. Ultimately, the goal is to protect your home from unexpected repairs and replacements.

What Does a Service Plan Cover?

At Genove Oil & Air, our service plans include:

1. Annual Tune-up:

We provide you with a 16-point system tune-up that reduces the likelihood of malfunction in the middle of the season.

2. Provide customers with priority service:

This includes emergency services 24/7.

3. Discount on Labor and Parts:

This helps homeowners save money on repairs, parts and labor that are not included in the annual tune-up.

4. Extends the lifetime of your heating or cooling system.

Benefits of Regular HVAC Maintenance

Having a service contract makes it more likely that your heating and cooling system will receive annual tune-ups. This allows our technicians to find small problems before they turn into big, expensive issues. The regular cleaning and filter changes also make your environment healthier.

Do You Need a Service Contract if Your System is New?

Many people assume they do not need a maintenance plan if they have a new HVAC system but often times manufacturers actually require a service contract as a term of the warranty. Plus, having your system looked over by a licensed professional will help you keep your system running efficiently and effectively for a longer period of time.

Peace of Mind

Investing in a service plan gives you peace of mind.

Maintenance plans can be viewed similarly to any type of insurance you take out for your home. While there’s no guarantee you will need it, you will have the peace of mind knowing you have it should an issue arise.
