Memberships Are a Valuable Investment

Homeowners face all kinds of challenges. One of the biggest challenges is the failure of their heating, air conditioning or plumbing. Most manufacturers offer warranties for equipment, but it isn’t always as reliable as you would like. For instance, you may have to wait on equipment and replacement parts. Your most cost-effective solution is usually a service maintenance contract to maintain your system properly.  Without a reliable maintenance program, these malfunctions can significantly raise the cost of running your home.

Building codes, state and federal laws, your local environment, and technology all change constantly. Navigating all of these regulations is a daunting task. Your certified technician is kept informed of these new regulations. In addition, your technician stays current with the latest research and innovations with information directly from the equipment manufacturers and industry publications.  You can receive targeted information about your specific system from your certified technician, including manufacturers service recommendations and upgrades, and parts replacement options.  Your certified technicians have a high level of expertise because they are seasoned professionals and understand the importance of your system’s maintenance.

Your membership plan has valuable tools and discounts exclusively for its members. You can move to the front of the line for service calls and membership will pay for itself in many ways: free services, discounts on parts and labor, savings in utilities and extending equipment life. You can save money by preventing little problems from becoming big, expensive repairs.  The value of a membership plan will only increase in an emergency. Using these proactive services, many equipment failures can be anticipated and prevented. Regular maintenance will alert the service provider of small problems and allow a solution to be implemented before a major catastrophe.

You may avoid waiting an extra day or two while a part is shipped, too. Your service provider has most parts in stock. However, when parts aren’t in stock, your membership may allow for expedited shipping and replacement of those parts. Some service agreements even guarantee 100% local part availability. Limiting the time your equipment is out of operation will cut costs and lessen your inconvenience.

Consistent maintenance of your equipment can save you a great deal of money - and peace of mind. Many service plans offer a multiple visit service plan, like a heating maintenance call, an air conditioning maintenance call and a plumbing service call included in the membership price. All of these visits include multi-point inspections of the system as well as routine maintenance. Each visit may cost nearly as much as the membership plan itself if they are made individually.  If you have more than one system, like two air conditioning units, most maintenance plans will service both systems as part of the maintenance call.  Your service providers may also contact you to schedule your service at the appropriate time of year, so it’s more convenient for you.  Many providers offer preferred pricing and preferred scheduling exclusively for its members.

To sign up for your maintenance plan, like Berkeys BAM Plan, call your certified HVAC technician or visit their website. Berkeys BAM Plan can help save you money on service calls and provide annual HVAC and plumbing tune-ups.  Ask about discounts or rebates.  Your certified HVAC technician may also have additional suggestions and may have additional specials on equipment or other services.
