You Get What You Pay For: Invest in the Health of Your HVAC System

When was the last time you had dental work done? Do you remember? Did you call around looking for the lowest quote?

Probably not.

You probably did more research that fell in line with qualifications and “quality” over keeping your cost as low as possible.

Do you remember the last time you needed to take your pet to the vet for an emergency situation? Did you call around to the vets in your area to find the cheapest price?

Of course not.

As pet owners, we take the care and comfort of our furry (or feathered, scaled, whatever you’ve got) friends (and otherwise “extensions of the family). We don’t leave it to chance in the hopes that we can save some money.

This same line of thinking applies to our homes. We don’t look for the cheapest contractor when we need a new roof. We want someone that ensures that the elements aren’t leaking into the living room; you know what I mean?

Okay, all this said, who do you place your trust in when it comes to the comfort of your home? We’re talking air quality and temperature. Do you leave it to chance? Do you leave it to the lowest bidder?

We sure hope not.

There’s more to the health of your heating and cooling system than the lowest sticker price, or those attention grabbing “$69 AC Tune UP!” stickers slapped on a sale ad.

No. When it comes to whom you contract for the health and wellbeing of your home or office’s HVAC system, hire someone you trust. Hire someone that can keep your heating and cooling environment optimized and running for a nice, long life. That’s where the savings is. What good is a $69 tune-up if it isn’t addressing all the proper needs your system requires to ensure its life hasn’t just been cut by 25-50%? A new system is a whole lot more than a maintenance fee… The idea of maintenance isn’t a “one size fits all” type of equation.

Here’s the thing:

When it comes to your HVAC system, there really isn’t an immediate indication that an install or service was done properly. At least not to the common user/owner.

Like your dentist, family doctor, or vet, you need to go on reputation. You need to take comfort in the notion that the people you have on your side are actually on your side and not just hitting you for a quick, cheap buck.

Do you find yourself muttering, ‘eh, so what if my system was not cleaned properly and always runs 20% longer each time I starts it up…’ – or – ‘so what if the drain that runs from my system isn’t cleaned properly…”?

Do you? Do you care that improperly cleaned drainage mechanisms are causing standing water to pool up inside your system and rusting it from the inside out? Of course you care, and course you weren’t muttering those things. You don’t want to think about them. You want to be certain our system is running.

So, you’ll probably do a little research, yeah? Yeah. Here are some things to look for .

You’re looking for experienced technicians that have the proper qualifications and tools for the job. You want a company that stands on its laurels and continually looks to improve. You want a track record that speaks for itself.

You want Suburban Companies.

And no, we’re not looking to sound arrogant. That is not our intention at all, and those that have met us and work with us know this to be true. We’ve simply “been there, and done that.” There’s a reason we’re the trusted source in our field. There’s a reason we’ve won so many coveted awards, such as six-straight President’s Awards from Carrier – a well-respected industry giant.

If you’re serious about your home’s heating and cooling solution, and you’re not out for the cheapest quote, give us a call. Because truthfully, spending a little more in the moment, is saving you a whole lot in the long run. You can take that to the bank, and in the meantime:

Take comfort.
