Is an HVAC service agreement right for you?
So how do you decide? First, you have to decide how much of the routine maintenance you are willing to
perform. If you are even a basic do-it-yourselfer, you can do the recommended maintenance (you can watch
videos to assist you).
Next, you need to look at your expected repair costs. Is the unit still covered by factory warranty?
If it is, then there is no need to purchase a contract that covers repair parts. Those costs would
already be covered.
Is the unit old and no longer under warranty? Have you had a lot of repair bills in the past? If you
answer yes to both of those questions, then ask yourself how much you can spend. Consider this, if your
unit is that old, it might make more sense to replace it. In this case, you would probably pay $300-$500
per year for the contract. In just a few years, you will have spent enough to buy a new unit.
By examining these things, you will be informed and make better decisions about whether hvac service
agreements are right for you and your home. This will keep some of your hard earned money in your
pocket. And your equipment will still receive adequate care.
