For your comfort, safety, and savings, we’ve established the Happy Hiller Club as a way to assist homeowners in taking an active and annual approach to system upkeep.

In the spirit of spring and this time of transition and rejuvenation, we help your home bloom. Spring is the best season for maintenance. Your plumbing, HVAC, and electrical system are put to work all year. Make sure they are doing they’re job properly with annual service appointments from your favorite local home service company.

What’s the point of maintenance?

Preventative maintenance is imperative to avoid costly breakdowns and repairs. You reap the benefits with greater energy savings while maximizing the life of the system. To ensure that your home systems are performing in top condition, check out Hiller’s Home Maintenance Plan.

We worked with our customers to put together a plan that best met homeowners’ needs — annual inspections, precision tune-ups, and professional technicians that can cover all four systems of the home.

Benefits of Plumbing Maintenance

Improved Air Quality – Air pollutants and contaminants contribute to poor indoor air quality. Without proper piping, leaks and water damage can occur. Water leaks lead to mold and mildew, some of the main contributors to poor indoor health. Breathe healthy by ensuring there are no water leaks or cracked pipes in your home.

Increased Plumbing Lifespan – A clogged or cracked pipe wears down the efficiency and performance of your plumbing system. With annual tune-ups and regular maintenance, any potential repairs can be dealt with on the spot. Don’t let issues compound until you’re looking at a costly replacement system. The lifespan of your plumbing system will be maximized with professional maintenance.

Money Savings – Maintenance and money savings go hand in hand. Preventative check-ups may seem unnecessary or even a luxury. Maintenance plans with Hiller are affordable and effective.

Proper plumbing leads to reduction in monthly water bills. You also won’t need to worry about any costly repairs or replacements. If a repair ever does pop up, Happy Hiller Club members receive a 10% discount and front-of-the-line scheduling.

Benefits of Electrical Maintenance

Electrical Safety – There is a reason any electrical work needs to be done by a professional. Electricity can be life and death business. Any necessary electrical repairs can become dangerous quickly, risking electrical fires, electrical faults, and electrocution. Routine maintenance involves a professional inspection and testing of your electrical circuits and assessment of the electrical system.

Protect Your Investments – Blown fuses, circuit breakers failing, overloaded circuits are all things that can be assessed by a professional. You may need to upgrade the circuits or add a new line. Ensuring that your outlets and your system are performing correctly and effectively protects you and the appliances and technology plugged into them.

Reduce Energy Costs – Any issues in your system will show up on your monthly electrical bill. Be energy efficient by signing up for routine maintenance.

Benefits of HVAC Maintenance

System Longevity – Probably the best benefit of HVAC maintenance is that it will extend the lifespan of your unit. You should be able to get at least two decades out of your home’s unit.

Indoor Air Quality – Overtime, debris and contaminants can build up and get pushed into your living space from your HVAC unit. Carbon monoxide leaks can occur with gas furnaces. Clean filters or upgraded filters may be recommended based on your home’s air quality concerns. Ductwork and airflow are monitored during a maintenance tune-up.

Energy Efficiency – Managing your energy use begins with HVAC maintenance. Regularly scheduled maintenance of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit is important in order to ensure the efficiency of each of these aspects.
