08 Mar The Value of a Home Protection Plan(Last Updated On: August 16, 2018)
What is a home protection plan?
Protection plans offer homeowners preventative maintenance. Under most home protection plans, a service provider reviews and inspects your heating and cooling systems.
For example, industry recommendations indicate regularly scheduled maintenance on your heating and air conditioning systems reduce breakdowns by as much as 95%.
Preventative maintenance finds issues before they cause more issues down the road. The proactive approach helps reduce the chance your major equipment will breakdown when it needs to perform…during wicked winter weather and when the in-laws are in town!
Additionally, routine reviews lower utility bills by as much as 30%.
Plus, regularly scheduled maintenance improves the longevity of, and reduces wear and tear on, your equipment. As a result, Fram Oil Filters sums it up, you can pay someone a little now or a lot later!
Finally, routine inspections assures year-round comfort.
Why is preventative maintenance so important?
When major appliances run efficiently, then they use less energy, which results in a reduced utility bill.
Energy Efficient Equipment
Not so fun fact, your furnace, hot water heater and AC unit (if applicable) can add up to over 60% of your annual energy expenses. However, regular maintenance reduces the operating cost of all of these appliances saving you big bucks!
Increased Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency ranked indoor air quality among the top five environmental dangers! Although the furnace and home flue system are designed to be the conduit to remove the dangerous gas from the home, these parts may fail over time. Additionally, many of the HVAC components get dirty, which results in poor air quality. This makes the annual inspections very important. For example, SolvIt performs camera inspections of these parts to ensure safe operation. Be sure that your protection plan includes the latest technology as well.
Equipment Warranties Protection
Please note that many equipment warranties mandate annual service by a licensed professional. For example, SolvIt protection plans include a lifetime warranty on parts and labor (again predicated on annual services). If for whatever reason you need to use your manufacturer’s warranty, be ready to show them that it was serviced regularly or you may be in trouble!
