No matter the season, homeowners want their homes to be a haven against the weather. But while everyone welcomes spring and summer, the sun brings its own challenges that are just as formidable as snow and wind chill factors.
That's why a little preventive maintenance now can help avoid service disruptions later this summer, when customers need it.
"The key to a pleasant summer is a pre-season tune-up," said Georgeann Georges, vice president/general manager of Sears In-Home Product Repair Services. "In the summer, a home's cooling system is critical for a family's comfort and safety. Sears recommends homeowners take time now to ensure their cooling systems are functioning properly before the season begins."
To ensure their homes remain a cool oasis against the elements, Sears is offering two specials. The first gives homeowners a chance to save more than over 50 percent off the regular price on a pre-season cooling system tune-up from now until May 15(1). The second offers zero percent financing until April 2004 on select new Kenmore® or Carrier® systems or 10 percent off. This offer ends April 26, 2003(2).
Customers can call 1-800-4-MY-HOME® or visit www.sears.com for full details on offers, zero percent financing or to schedule an in-home service appointment or request a free in-home estimate with a cooling specialist for a new or replacement system.
For $69.99, residential customers can have their cooling systems inspected, cleaned and lubricated. Sears has more than 10,000 in-home service technicians skilled at repairing every ajor brand of cooling systems, no matter where they were purchased.
With the cost of utilities rising, homeowners with cooling systems 10 years or older may want to make sure they are getting the most out of their cooling dollars, especially as these systems lose their ability to cool a home efficiently.
A new ENERGY STAR® qualified high efficiency central cooling system, when properly sized and installed, can save up to 20 percent annually on annual cooling costs, depending on your home. An investment in a more efficient system can keep a family comfortable even during the hottest days, while upgrading your existing system can save on energy usage.
Only Sears has the ability to offer Carrier® and Kenmore® products through one of the nation's largest HVAC sales organizations, giving customers more reason to rely on Sears when it comes to outfitting their homes and families.
If you are looking for exceptional quality and value in a new heating or cooling system, look no further than Sears. Every heating and cooling system Sears sells is covered by a full one-year written limited warranty on installation with manufacturer's warranties on the products. In addition, Sears offers protection agreements for up to 10 years.
Make this summer enjoyable by ensuring your cooling system works when you need it most.
