Our Maintenance Plans
Why R.A. Hoy Customers Benefit From Our Energy Savings Agreement
Established in 1979 and one of the first Heating and Cooling companies on the Outer Banks, Hoy has grown into one of the largest and most technologically advanced. We are also one of the largest sources of Trane equipment on the North Carolina coast.
Parts and labor for any required service or repairs
Your service call will be given priority over customers who
do not sign up for the Energy Savings Agreement. This will reduce down time.
Less Energy Use
A clean and well-maintained system uses from 20% to
30% less energy. The savings alone can pay for the Energy Savings Agreement.
Extend Service Life
Regularly serviced equipment lasts up to 50% longer than non-maintained equipment.
Projected Equipment Failure
Our highly trained service technicians may be able to predict future equipment failure. Since the equipment is well maintained, there is a better chance it won’t break down during busy seasons or times of extreme weather conditions.
Peace Of Mind
The security of knowing there is no down time on your rental property. Your system performance is monitored on a regularly scheduled agreement plan.
Manufacturers warranties may require proof of at least one (1) annual maintenance being performed to retain the validity of any repair claim.
Routine maintenance equals cost savings. On average, 68% of emergency trouble calls are a result of not using routine maintenance.
Dirty, non-maintained equipment can cause dust mites, poor indoor quality, soiling of grilles, walls and furniture.
