Maintenance

We maintain you need a maintenance agreement. Here’s why.

Whether it’s for equipment installation, a simple repair, or ongoing maintenance, our friendly, NATE-certified technicians are such a pleasure to have in your home, you may want to consider setting up a maintenance agreement with us so you can see them more regularly. Maintenance agreements simply assure your continued comfort at home as well as doing business with New Berlin Heating & Cooling.

A maintenance agreement from New Berlin Heating makes sense because it will extend the life of your equipment and keep it running smoothly and efficiently. Maintenance agreements are a great way to reduce or eliminate unexpected repair bills, ensure peak performance, and increase the longevity of your furnace and central air conditioning. Essentially, a maintenance agreement signals that you’re a preferred customer who’s entitled to comprehensive protection, on-site support with priority service, and annual maintenance check-ups.

Routine maintenance is the best way to protect you from the expense and stress of catastrophic failure. Nearly all homeowners can replace or clean a filter, but further servicing most likely requires the expertise of a New Berlin professional. Our service technicians are trained to detect any problems in the event that your system isn’t performing properly. That’s where a maintenance agreement may actually pay for itself—we notice minor problems before they become costly major repairs or breakdowns.

Additionally, detailed maintenance and repair records of your heating and cooling systems may increase the perceived value if you sell your home in the future. We can help you determine the maintenance agreement that best fits your needs and budget.

If you want the very best, maintained by the very best (and nicest), give New Berlin Heating a call.
