Heating & Cooling Service Contract Basics

Free Estimate ChalkUtilizing a service and maintenance contract for your HVAC needs can be a smart decision for commercial property owners.  These contracts allow you to negotiate and build a plan that best fits your need related to age of your equipment, budget, and overall use of service.  Let’s take a look at what these basic contracts look like.

There are a number of ways that these contracts are set-up, depending on how much coverage you elect to take.  Some of the contract types you might see include:

  • 100% Fully-Covered – This type of plan traditionally covers all parts, labor, and emergency service calls.  It is also typically paired with a maintenance contract. Expect this coverage to be the most expensive because it has such a wide coverage layout.
  • 100% Full-Covered Labor Only – The type of plan covers all labor related to repair, replacement, or maintenance.  Depending on the contract, you may also get emergency calls covered.  You can typically expect this type of contract to be the next most-expensive in the group.
  • Preventative Maintenance – This type of plan usually involves the discounted purchase of a number of visits to perform tasks like filter changes, operational checks, etc.
  • Inspection Service – This type of contract usually pays for the visual inspection of equipment across a specified time period.
