August is in full swing, and if you’re like most homeowners in the Montgomery County, Maryland and NW Washington, DC area you had your air conditioner working hard all summer long to keep you cool. With this summer’s scorching hot temperatures though, not all local residents have been so lucky to have a working air conditioner throughout the summer heat. When temperatures exceed 90 degrees and you have a broken air conditioner, you will do anything to repair your air conditioning system – no matter how much it costs.
In fact, many Montgomery County, Maryland and NW Washington, DC residents called into our HVAC company and were willing to pay the overtime rate to fix the air conditioner that same day, but we had to deny them because there were many other residents who already discovered they had broken air conditioners too! In the summer, demand for air conditioning repairs is at its highest, making you scour for any HVAC company to service your broken A/C unit or having to wait a couple days until an HVAC technician is available. However, all of this can be avoided by simply doing one thing: signing up for an HVAC maintenance agreement.
HVAC preventive maintenance is essential to keep your heating and cooling system working during extreme weather conditions. With an HVAC maintenance agreement, a heating and cooling company offers two check-ups a year, usually one in the spring and one in the fall.
HVAC service agreements often offer some kind of air conditioning or heating service guarantee, such as if the heating and cooling system fails within a certain amount of time from the most recent maintenance service then the HVAC company will repair your HVAC system at their own expense! Additionally, if your air conditioner or heater happens to fail during peak months, you will have priority over new customers, so you won’t have to wait to get your HVAC system fixed and might not be charged an overtime rate!
Every HVAC service agreement is different, so ask your local HVAC company about what air conditioning and heating service agreements they offer. If you are in Montgomery County, Maryland or NW Washington, DC, contact James A. Wheat & Sons today to learn more about our HVAC service agreements to ensure you will be cool every summer and warm every winter!
