Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Do You Have a Service Agreement? Here's Why You Should Join the Club

Paschal 9.10.13An important part of extending your HVAC equipment’s lifespan is to schedule annual preventative maintenance. A great way to make sure the tune-up happens every year is to sign up for a maintenance agreement. This is a contract between you and an HVAC company. For a reasonable fee, you enjoy a number of benefits. Here’s a look at five of them:

  • Hassle-free tune-ups: If you have a habit of forgetting to schedule preventative maintenance, you hand over responsibility to the HVAC contractor once you sign up for a maintenance agreement. You are reminded about your upcoming annual or semi-annual service to ensure you don’t forget to schedule it.
  • System longevity: Your HVAC system is one of the most costly investments in your home. Help the equipment last longer by keeping it well-maintained with tune-ups. You wouldn’t neglect your car if you wanted it to last for years, so you shouldn’t neglect your home comfort equipment, either.
  • Increased energy efficiency: This results in two major benefits: decreased energy bills and improved home comfort. You should do everything you can to improve HVAC system efficiency because it impacts your daily comfort tremendously. A maintenance agreement is a proven way to do this.
  • Peace of mind: When heating and cooling equipment malfunctions, it has the potential to harm you or your family. Regular maintenance ensures everything is in top working condition so you can rest assured that your family is safe. It also helps catch problems early so you can avoid expensive repairs.
  • Discounts and priority service: While maintenance prevents the need for many repairs, emergencies still sometimes happen. With your maintenance agreement behind you, expect to receive discounts on future repairs and 24-hour priority service over non-contracted customers. You even enjoy special discounts on replacement equipment and the choice to transfer your maintenance agreement to the new unit.

You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain by joining the Paschal Energy Savings Club. To learn more about the benefits that await you, please contact Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal. We have proudly served residents of northwest Arkansas for the past 40 years.
