Preventive Maintenance

The benefits of regular preventive maintenance are twofold: your equipment will be well prepared for extreme weather, and Solution Based will then be more capable to handle the lightened load during peak season.  Better for everyone! These preventive maintenance service agreements are offered at a fixed price for 10 years, as long as they are renewed yearly.

Each preventive maintenance agreement provides a comprehensive program at an affordable price. In many cases, an annual agreement costs LESS THAN ONE emergency call!

It is a good way to protect your investment and ensure your comfort. Surely, it’s a part of our effort to  provide you with simple, worry free comfort year round.

Solution Based is a well established corporation and has the staff and equipment to completely  support our services. Our technicians are professional, dependable and qualified to service your  plumbing, heating or air conditioning equipment.

Systems that are properly maintained perform better and last longer. Your initial investment is  recovered by not having to spend on preventable calls.  A properly functioning system adds to the resale value of your home!

A system that is kept in tiptop shape operates more reliably and efficiently; the value of the energy  saved will, in some cases, exceed the cost of the scheduled inspection and fine tuning.

During a preventative maintenance visit, we perform a multi­point check and put your system in peak operating condition – once before winter  and once before summer. This plan covers the labor charge for both seasonal checks. Parts are not  included. Any additional service calls for breakdowns will get priority service but at a reduced rate.

  • Air­ Conditioning – before June 30

While we are very proactive during our preventative maintenance visits, we can’t guarantee system failure will not occur. Proper maintenance and inspection by a qualified technician does stop many problems before they lead to potentially dangerous or damaging system failure. Customer shall agree to not hold Solution Based liable for system failure of any kind.  Warranty on our service and parts is stated on our invoice.
