There’s something that isn’t often mentioned in our industry. It’s a “dark and dirty” secret, you might say. (And I do mean dirty.)
The Number 1 Reason for system failure is not age, or brand, or lightning, or that someone plays with the thermostat WAY too much. The #1 Reason for system failure is dirt.
And the reason this isn’t exactly well known among homeowners is due to something you’ll instantly understand: A new system costs thousands of dollars. Yet a maintenance program to prevent system failure is just pennies on the dollar. Now you know.
At American Star we feel it is our ethical duty to educate you on ways to A) Save money, B) Save time, C) Save you hassle and headaches. Especially when we know a better way. And believe me, what I have to tell you is much better than waiting for a system failure… Annual Maintenance!
Let me introduce you to your enhanced American Star Maintenance Club program. Our membership plan includes an air conditioner and furnace tune-up each year, along with priority emergency service, and discounts. Each plan now has different features such as discounts on repairs or no dispatch fees and trip charges.
Our Energy Savings Agreement is a way to ensure that A, B, and C happen for you! Plus a whole lot more. How?
Well, you won’t have to even think about “remembering” your service schedule. We do it for you. Oh, and you’re guaranteed to save more energy dollars as an Energy Savings Agreement member. Plus you have documentation that you have followed the manufactures requirements if you have a warranty. Just these two little benefits can pay for your Membership! But – as they say in the commercials – there’s more…
And that’s peace-of-mind, which is impossible to put a price on. You’ll get Priority Service – even on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. Your equipment will last longer. And you won’t have to wonder if you’re taking good care of this incredibly complicated machinery in your home… you will be. Guaranteed.
Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups. Contractors get busy once summer and winter come, so it's best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall. To remember, you might plan the check-ups around the time changes in the spring and fall.
