Why is a Service Contract Important?
The best part about service contracts is that your equipment and systems last longer and over time you actually spend less money.
Whether you have installed a complete encapsulation where your control system in your crawlspace, a sump pump, a dehumidifier an ultraviolet light, or HEPA Air filtration unit at your home or business, a service contract is the best way to ensure that your investment will last into the future.
Typical service contracts are on intervals of six months or once a year. The cost per visit is usually in the range of $125-$225. This includes a technician reviewing your equipment and systems, changing filters, and looking for and servicing any wear and tear or new damages. If new damages or new problems are discovered they are always less expensive to resolve when they are small.
Service Contracts are the best way to maintain healthy air quality once you have achieved it in your home.
Maintenance is also much less expensive than having to start over again. Expenses can quickly add up when completing an indoor air quality project where the property has been ignored for an extended period of time such as 10, 20, or even 30 years. It can often cause $5,000 – $10,000 to resolve the underlying causes of poor indoor air quality. The cost of $125-225 to have a qualified technician perform a service contract visit becomes extremely affordable when trying to prevent the major cost of a remediation. Also there is the benefit of continued good indoor air quality creating a healthier environment.
Equipment lasts longer when serviced and maintained. When properly maintained, most equipment will last up to 50% longer than non-serviced equipment.
Signing a service contract and paying for it may feel like money spent before there is a problem but it is the most cost-effective way to ensure your investment in to indoor air quality will last.
