At Pure Aire we strive to educate our customers on the importance of Preventative Maintenance on their air conditioning and heating system.
It’s easy to ignore your HVAC system until it breaks down
Most home owners tend to think in terms of “Breakdown Maintenance”, meaning that they only need to spend money on their HVAC system after it has broken down. Roughly 90% of premature breakdowns and repairs could have been avoided had the home owner invested in “Preventative Maintenance.”
First and foremost, routine maintenance is an investment by preventing potential problems from becoming expensive repairs. Secondly, a properly maintained and cleaned system will consume less energy than a system that is not maintained and cleaned.
Regular HVAC maintenance is said to reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by as much as 90%. During your routine maintenance we are able to detect potential problems before they become costly repairs. Making a repair or replacing a part during routine maintenance is significantly cheaper because we are already on site.
Cut Energy Bills
Preventative maintenance helps ensure that your HVAC system runs at close to peak efficiency as possible. This can mean savings of up to 30% on your energy bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Extend System Life
Routine maintenance can also help you save money by extending the life of your system. This is especially important for the homeowners who just invested thousands of dollars installing a new HVAC system in their home. Without routine maintenance the life of that new system will be cut in half. Why wouldn’t you protect your investment?
Stay Covered Under Warranty
It’s important to be aware that most HVAC manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance when a repair claim is submitted under warranty. Some of the components that make your HVAC system work are fairly expensive, so investing in annual maintenance to keep them covered under your warranty can save you a significant sum if something goes wrong.
What we offer
Annual Maintenance: Includes (2) annual safety and performance inspections. One A/C inspection in the spring and one Heating inspection in the fall.
Priority 24-Hour Service
Preventative Maintenance Plan (PMP) customers have priority over Non-Preventative Maintenance customers. If we don’t get to you within 24 hours of receiving your call then the service call fee of $59 will be waived!
Discounted Service Calls
Normal service calls are $75. PMP members pay only $59. If for some reason we should have to come out on a service call between the two routine maintenance inspections, the service call would only be $59 instead of our normal $75.
Discounts On Repairs/Parts
PMP members get 15% of all parts, repairs, and all accessories i.e. thermostats, dehumidifiers, air purifiers , etc. We also offer a 15% discount on new installations.
Once you invest in a Preventative Maintenance Plan you are “locked in” at that price for as long as you maintain your membership. This is an agreement not a contract. You can cancel at any time. However, should you choose to cancel at any time there will be no refunds and we must receive a written letter of cancellation with in 30 days prior to cancellation. We ask this so we can be sure that are system is up to date and you are not further charged.
PMP’S Are Transferable
You have the luxury of transferring your PMP from one property to another. Should you decide to sell your home, your PMP will transfer to a new property or to the buyer of your property. However, the details of transfer must be discussed between all parties before being finalized.
