When I signed up for my local HVAC company’s annual service plan, I had no idea how much it would benefit me.
The only reason I signed up in the first place was because I knew it would save me a few dollars on my annual service exams.
I purchased the annual membership thinking that I’d only get this small discount because my HVAC system never gives me any issues. However, this past week, I found myself calling the emergency hotline! I typically have my HVAC system serviced before turning on my air conditioner, but this year the temperature increased earlier than I was anticipating. I turned my furnace off and began running my air conditioner without thinking about the consequences. That night, I woke up sweating because the air conditioning wasn’t running. I tried tinkering with the thermostat settings, but nothing happened. I even shut off the HVAC system completely and waited 30 minutes. I was hoping the air conditioner would kick back on after a little break, but that didn’t happen. It was hot and sticky in my house, and the weather application on my phone told me that the temperature outside was 78 degrees. I called the emergency hotline with my HVAC company and they were able to schedule an HVAC professional to come to my home at 7am! I’m so thankful I signed up for that membership! If I wouldn’t have done it, I wouldn’t have been considered a priority client and I would’ve paid more for the emergency hotline.
