Sometimes people wonder if a maintenance agreement is worth it. Let’s try to put it into perspective. If compared to a car, an average heating and cooling system runs the equivalent of 330,000 miles in a year. Would you run your vehicle that long without service? If it is difficult for you to remember to change your filters, you should definitely invest in a maintenance agreement.
Clogged filters cause air flow restriction, which can cause higher utility bills, and system damage. Frequency of filter changes depends on the type you have. If you just have the fiberglass throw away filters, they are only about 7% efficient and were designed just to keep large items like a plastic grocery bag or piece of paper from being sucked into the blower compartment. They should be changed very 4-6 months. If you have pleated filters, they typically need changed less often. If you have pets or perform construction in your house or install new carpet, check them more often.
Our Maintenance Agreement page has an area where you can view the agreement and also the comprehensive check list. If you are interested in signing up, let the St. Clairsville or Barnesville office know, they will send out the agreement, you sign it, send in payment and we will call to schedule your check up at the appropriate time. As well, you will automatically be offered a renewal. You only sign up for one year at a time, we do not automatically bill you for another year. If you don’t want to renew, that is fine.
Please call or email with any additional information you may need.
