Energy Savings Agreement

G+S Energy offers a solution for customers looking to invest in a maintenance plan for their heating/cooling system. Energy Savings Agreements encompass a range of services and benefits that are designed to increase your unit’s life span. They also improve performance.

What You Need to Know about Energy Savings

There’s nothing worse than having a heating or cooling issue and being forced to wait for repairs. The busiest seasons for HVAC companies are typically winter and summer, when many system problems crop up in homes and offices. An Energy Savings Agreement qualifies you for inspection and service twice a year so you can avoid the mid-season breakdown with all the others. This allows you to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter without having to worry about being put on a waiting list.

  • Energy Savings: Optimize the performance of your unit and save every month on your utility expenses. A clean system runs more efficiently, doesn’t consume as much energy, and costs less. Additionally, paying a little more now to save long-term on your energy bill is a smart investment in comfort and safety.
  • Increased Life Expectancy of System: Purchasing an HVAC system will be one of the most expensive purchases you as a homeowner will make.  After your house and car, an HVAC system is probably next in line. If you want to make that purchase last as long as possible, investing in a maintenance plan can make that happen.  Your system is a complex mechanical piece of equipment and it shouldn’t have to work harder than it is designed to.  So don’t let neglect cut it’s life short and require you to make another costly investment prematurely.
  • Fast, Reliable Service: Have confidence that you’ve selected the best response team should an unforeseen emergency ever arise. As a result of being an Energy Savings Agreement holder, you receive priority service. This comes in handy when the weather goes to the extremes and waiting lists get long.
  • Reduced Repair Costs: In the event that your unit does need to be repaired, the Energy Savings Agreement qualifies you for 15% off standard prices. Plus – no overtime rates.
  • Transferrable Agreement: Should you choose to sell your home, the Energy Savings Agreement is attached to the house and can be transferred to new owners. This can increase the market value of your home and be an attractive feature when selling.

An ESA entitles you to:

  • Priority Service- so you go to the front of line over non-agreement customers, when times are busy and you desperately need relief, and
  • 15% off any repairs that would be needed

Spring/Summer Tune-Ups include:

  • Check the refrigerant level, the freon, and provide you with up to one pound included if needed (if more than 1 lb. needed customer pays for additional) to make sure your system is providing you the maximum cooling possible
  • Clean the outside condenser coil to maximize heat transfer and energy savings
  • Change your filters to ensure you are not starving the system for air, which is a major cause of equipment failure
  • Flush out your drain line to keep water from backing up and spilling over potentially damaging your ceiling or floor and cutting off your unit unexpectedly due to the safety features in the units
  • Test the amperage on your electrical components such as the capacitor, compressor, condenser motor, blower motor, venter motor and contactor to see if they operating as they should be
  • Inspect and replace any belts that are used
  • Inspect blower motor for loose bearings and abnormal vibrations that might cause equipment failure down the road
  • Visual inspection of ductwork to look for major sources of damage, leakage, or animal occupancy (they like to be cool too)
  • Inspect and notify homeowner of any water building up in the unit or in the crawlspace/ basement/ attic that could cause growth of harmful bacteria and mold

Fall/Winter Tune-Ups include:

  • Clean the indoor evaporator coil if accessible to maximize heat transfer and energy savings
  • Change your filters to ensure you are not starving the system for air, which is a major cause of equipment failure
  • For furnaces, inspect for cracked heat exchangers that could create carbon monoxide in your home which makes you sick at best and causes death at worst
  • Inspect furnace burners to make sure they are operating properly to deliver the required amount of heating
  • Inspect the gas valve to make sure it is operating as designed for maximum heating capacity
  • Make sure the unit is venting properly and safely to the outside so that no toxic gases are released into the home
  • Check the heat pump refrigerant level, the freon, and provide you with up to one pound included if needed (if more than 1 lb. needed customer pays for additional) to make sure your system is providing you the maximum heating possible
  • Verify that the auxiliary heat strips are operating properly to ensure you get that extra heating capacity when temperatures drop below 30 degrees. Or aren’t shorted out so that they are constantly stuck in the “on” position which drives up your monthly electric bills significantly
  • Test the amperage on your electrical components such as the capacitor, compressor, condenser motor, blower motor, venter motor, and contactor to see if they operating as they should be
  • Inspect and replace any belts that are used
  • Inspect blower motor for loose bearings and abnormal vibrations that might cause equipment failure down the road
  • Visual inspection of ductwork to look for major sources of damage, leakage, or animal occupancy (they like to be warm too)
  • Inspect and notify homeowner of any water building up in the unit or in the crawlspace/ basement/ attic that could cause growth of harmful bacteria and mold

Assurance that the manufacturer will honor your parts warranty that came with your equipment.  All manufacturers require annual maintenance and if you don’t have it done they can exercise their option to not warranty the part sticking you with the cost of labor and the part.
