What is an HVAC Contract

An HVAC contract is a legal document that creates a binding agreement between real estate owners and HVAC technicians to install or maintain the heating and cooling systems in a residential or commercial building.

An HVAC contract can also be referred to as a:

  • HVAC Service Agreement
  • HVAC Maintenance Contract

These agreements require a technician to provide HVAC maintenance service, repairs, or HVAC installation jobs in the owner’s building or venue.

They also set a reasonable expectation on the service fees provided to the technician and what work the contractor must perform, amongst other considerations.

What is an HVAC SYSTEM

The acronym HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning.

An HVAC system, however, is an integrated climate control system that can be used to manage heating and refrigeration systems within residential and commercial buildings.

These integrated units are highly technical and can only be maintained by trained operatives.

Therefore, an HVAC service contract can prove essential to retaining the services of an expert technician so these systems are installed properly and remain in the best working condition.

What Does an HVAC Technician Do

An HVAC technician manages the installation, maintenance, and repair of an HVAC system in a building.

They are the ones responsible for tasks such as:

  • Performing diagnostics
  • Installing new parts
  • Changing air filters and other replaceable components
  • Making emergency repairs
  • Ensuring the HVAC system meets safety standards

As this is a highly specialized role, having a trained technician under contract can save time and money for building owners and make sure maintenance is upheld.

Types of HVAC Contracts

Not all HVAC contracts are the same. Depending on the work needed by the owner of a building, they can be adjusted and customized to conform to specific conditions and jobs.

In most cases, businesses and individuals will prepare and use 2 specific types of HVAC contracts.

1. HVAC maintenance agreements

Residential and commercial HVAC maintenance agreements are designed as long-term contracts to ensure the correct functioning and upkeep of an HVAC system in a building.

Under these contracts, technicians will regularly inspect, repair, and replace parts as necessary on an ongoing basis.

2. HVAC installation contracts

When a new HVAC system needs to be installed, a shorter-term installation contract can be used to cover the work required.

This can also include provisions of a maintenance contract too if required if the service and upkeep aren’t tendered out to another provider later.

How to Make an HVAC Contract

A bespoke HVAC contract can be easily made online or by paying a lawyer to draft it for you.

However, no matter how you create yours, the final contract should include information on the:

  • Names of the client and technician
  • Address where the work will take place
  • Exact services that will be provided
  • Price of the service
  • Signatures and date of signing

These details are essential to make sure an HVAC agreement does what it’s intended to do and provides the provisions for each party.
