With new construction, a remodel, or simply making a purchase of new oil heating system, you may wonder if purchasing a service contract makes sense. You’ve already invested quite a bit of money into your purchase, and question why you would spend more.
With the ever-changing weather on Long Island, one can never be sure if the winters will be extremely cold or relatively mild. No matter what the winters bring, it’s important to have a service contract, therefore we would like to explain why we believe they are important.
Here’s three reasons to purchase a service contract:
Routine maintenance saves you money:
The best way to know that your heating system is performing at its best is via a service agreement. It gives you the assurance that the equipment is being checked and serviced on a regular basis, and that an annual cleaning will be performed as scheduled. Additionally, we monitor the parts, and work to stay ahead of any issues that could occur. If you wait until you notice changes in the air, i.e., less cool or not getting hot enough, you may have waited too long to have it serviced.
When the worst happens, we are there:
Dramatic weather can have a negative impact on your system and its supply lines. To that end, you are fully aware of the importance of maintaining your system all year long. In either weather extreme, having your system fail can be dangerous to you and your family, not to mention to water pipes in the freezing winter months. It does seem that systems fail in the most extreme weather. If your system becomes damaged or breaks down, we can dispatch an emergency team that is already familiar with your system to get it back up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Are you a good candidate for a contract:
They are very beneficial to older systems but can also be very helpful to newer homes, even though new systems do come with manufacturer warranties.
With a service contact, you have all the maintenance scheduled on a routine basis, at times that fit your schedule. They also include inspections to ensure everything is functioning properly throughout the year.
