4 Benefits of Hiring a Full-Service HVAC and Plumbing Company

If you’re a homeowner, your utilities may have caused you some grief in the past. Air conditioners break, furnaces need to be repaired, and HVAC systems can flood; it can all be overwhelming. When something like that happens, you want to make sure you’re calling a reputable, full-service HVAC and plumbing company to get the job done fast.

A full-service HVAC and plumbing company services all utilities. From furnace repair to plumbing emergencies to air conditioning replacement, a full-service company can take care of it all for you. At Cates Heating and Cooling, our residential team provides full-service HVAC and plumbing solutions to all of Kansas City.

Instead of numerous individual contractors, many homeowners choose to work with one full-service HVAC and plumbing company. Not only does regularly servicing your heating, cooling, and plumbing systems keep them running longer, using a full-service company comes with other advantages, such as the ones listed below.

1.      Saves You Time

When one of your utilities stops working properly, you notice. A plumbing problem can turn into flooding and a broken heater can make your home frigid. You want to get these fixed fast. Full-service HVAC and plumbing companies help save time by being your “one-stop-shop.”

Full-service HVAC and plumbing companies also save you time on researching contractors. If you notice your air conditioner isn’t working properly, and later your plumbing needs a repair, you won’t need to search for someone new. One full-service company can repair or replace most issues with your home’s utilities. With one call, you can schedule all your needed repairs.

If a scheduling issue arises or you have questions, you only need to call one person to get everything sorted out. When you use separate contractors for plumbing and HVAC issues, calling and rescheduling becomes a bigger hassle.

Using a full-service HVAC and plumbing company is faster, easier, and most of all, more convenient for you.

2.      Allows You to Build Relationships

The convenience of using a full-service company for all your heating, air, and plumbing needs is the most apparent advantage. You work with one person for everything related to heating and plumbing services for your home.

However, in dealing with one person or company, you also begin to build a relationship with them. This is an advantage because they will get to know you on a more personal level and understand your home better.

Let’s say you get a new water heater put into your house, and ten years later, you’re having issues. If you used a full-service HVAC company, they would have a record of when they replaced it, the model numbers, and everything they will need to repair or replace it fast.

All of the systems in your home are connected and work together, even if it might not seem like it. If you use a heating repair company and a separate plumbing contractor who don’t communicate with each other, your home repairs can be delayed.

3.      A Full Service HVAC and Plumbing Company Saves You Money

Working with one full-service company will end up saving you money in the long run. It’s no secret that HVAC and plumbing repairs can be expensive, but certain companies offer special financing options. When using independent contractors, these options aren’t always available. Additionally, some companies offer discounts when you use them for multiple different services.

Our HVAC service plans at Cates Heating and Cooling help cover costs for repairs that not all insurances will. Our plans keep your units running longer and more efficiently, saving you money on bills, repairs, and future replacements.

4.      Provides Better Quality Work

When you need utility work done on your home, you want to make sure you are getting quality work from a reputable company. Full-service HVAC and plumbing companies understand how your systems all work together in your home. They look at the systems as a whole to identify problems that independent contractors might miss.

If your air conditioning is getting interrupted due to your ductwork system, a full-service HVAC company will be able to see and fix the issue. However, an air conditioning contractor might not have the same expertise in ductwork needed to fix it long-term, in which case another service call might be needed.

Full-service HVAC and plumbing companies provide a wide range of residential utility services that some contractors can’t offer. Full-service technicians can work on many different systems, no matter the brand, to get your utilities working.
