““Is preventive maintenance really worth the money? I have been thinking about a preventive maintenance contract for my HVAC equipment at home. But I have a friend who tells me that it’s not really worth the money. Is he right? If it is worth the money, what is generally covered in a PM agreement and how often is maintenance service rendered? Is there any situation in which a PM is not worth the money?”
The short answer:
Yes, preventive maintenance really is worth the money. Think of your HVAC equipment like you think of your car – if it gets regular tune-ups, emergency breakdowns are avoided and the life of the equipment is extended, saving you lots of money in the long-run. What’s more, preventive maintenance programs often provide additional benefits for customers, such as waived show-up fees for visits, discounted pricing on parts, and priority scheduling for all service calls. PM’s truly do make good sense!”

The automobile analogy is the perfect comparison as to why you should have a preventative maintenance contract. Simply put, both a car and HVAC system are large purchases costing thousands of dollars. We’re not talking about a kitchen appliance that you can replace without needing to take out a loan. Oftenttimes the cost of major repairs is much more than what you sacrifice for the peace of mind of a PM contract.
