Ok, I know behind-the-scenes home improvement stuff is not a “fun” way to spend money. Replacing the galvanized pipes under my house does not give me the same thrill as new granite countertops and a fresh backsplash. HOWEVER, we need our major home systems to get the job done for us all year long, no sick days allowed.
Who hasn’t experienced the total ordeal of coming home to a broken A/C in the middle of a Texas summer? Or that panic when you realize you’ve got a plumbing problem, and you need to get someone over to the house today. And, of course, everything is more pressing when you factor in the kids.
In honor of October being Energy Awareness Month, we finally have a good option for avoiding that crazy stress.
Reliant customers now have the option of a Reliant Home Maintenance Package. A flat $249 gets you periodic check-ups throughout the year from qualified technicians. Well visits for the house, if you will; something to lessen the impact of costly repairs and improve your home’s energy efficiency. Here’s a super general summary of the visits (the actual inspection checklist is quite comprehensive):
October/November is for heating tune-ups. They’ll asseess the HVAC from the top-down and inspect and test the gas valve, pilot light, heat exchanger, and more.
January/February is for plumbing inspection. Water pressure; leaks; the water supply lines to all your toilets, sinks, and appliances; water heater check-ups… they make sure you’re good to go for those cold temps and freezing nights.
March/April is for A/C tune-ups, similar to the heating inspection. They thoroughly check your HVAC to be sure you are ready to cool down the house when the Texas heat starts to ramp back up.
And what’s more, if their home inspection team does find an issue during the year that needs repairing, you’ll get a 10 percent discount on services and repairs from Reliant.
As an added BONUS, when new or current customers sign up for the Reliant Learn & ConserveSM 12 plan, you’ll get a fixed price electricity plan, plus the new Nest Thermostat E at no cost. We’ll take it, thanks!
If you’re into being proactive about maintaining and protecting your home, head over to the Reliant site for all the details on their new Home Maintenance Package. Call 1-855-457-5700 to get set up today.
