As a company that has been providing heater repairs in South Jersey and heating repair services in Philadelphia for decades, we are all too familiar with the benefits of purchasing a heating service plan. Although we also do our best to let our customers understand the benefits, some simply do not see investing in one as worthwhile. If you are one of those homeowners who are thinking of getting one, but still haven’t made that final decision, we ask that you consider the following:
Your Energy Bills
Are you noticing that your energy/utility bills are getting higher each month? While there can be a multitude of reasons why this is happening, one reason could be your heating unit. If your heating unit is left neglected, as in it does not receive maintenance at least once a year (which is something performed as part of a service plan), its efficiency will decline. This also means that to continue to work the way you programmed it to, your unit will require more energy, and, thus, your energy bills to be higher than usual.
How Much Money You Spend On Repairs
Are you calling someone to come out and make repairs to your heating unit more than once every of couple months? Well, if you are, the chances are that you might also be dishing out a lot of money to make them. However, if you had a service plan, you could take advantage of the fact that you get a discount on repairs because, believe it or not, this is a perk that comes from having one.
How Often You Have Heating Emergencies and Are Waiting For Service
How long did you have to wait for a heating repair technician to fix your heating unit after it suddenly stopped working one cold night? If your response is “too long,” you will be pleased to know that those who purchase a service plan will have a technician at their home fast. By fast we mean that you get priority service because of the fact that you have a service plan.
In the end, if you find that you are too familiar with any of the three things we mentioned above, we suggest you strongly consider a service plan. After all, having high energy bills, spending a ton of money on repairs, and having to wait hours for emergency service are not things that we think a lot of people enjoy dealing with—especially consistently.
