What Is an HVAC Contract?

An HVAC contract, also known as an HVAC service contract, HVAC service agreement, or HVAC agreement, is a legally binding document that specifies the terms and conditions around services provided by an HVAC professional or company for maintenance and repairs on their HVAC system.

What Is Included in an HVAC Service Contract?

When drafting an HVAC contract, take the necessary amount of time and attention needed to make it as comprehensive and straightforward as possible. Use simpler terms so that parties know what is expected from them.

1. Business Details

For an HVAC contract to be valid, you must identify the parties entering it, including the HVAC company’s legal name, their addresses, and their role in the transaction. It is essential to include an acknowledgment of the agreement as well.

2. Service Definitions

An important part of an HVAC service contract is defining the services you are providing. You may want to attach a Statement of Work to make the services being provided clear.

3. Cost and Payment Terms

This section will want to include information about services costs and how the HVAC professional expects to receive payment. Include whether the price is a flat-fee, ongoing, or period charge and how payments should be made.

4. Termination Clause

If the HVAC service provider or client decides to end the agreement, there should be terms and conditions surrounding termination. You can also use this section to describe how non-payment issues are handled, including a lien .

5. Indemnification Clause

When a dispute arises, an indemnification clause defines who pays for which damages suffered by the prevailing party.

6. Service Modifications

The HVAC company and the client may want to change the agreement at some point. The service modifications section determines how both parties should handle any changes and how to notify the other party.

7. Governance

If a dispute arises, establish which governing laws will be applied to address it. Most agreements only require an acknowledgment of state laws.

8. Date and Signature Lines

The final item to include in your contract is signature lines for each party to sign. It should also consist of space to add the date for each party’s signature.

Here is an article on contract signing .

Advantages and Disadvantages of Having an HVAC Contract

When installing, repairing, or maintaining an HVAC system, the service provider will ask the client to sign an HVAC contract. While the agreement protects both parties’ rights, some limitations should be considered as well.

Advantages Of An HVAC Service Contract

When it comes to an HVAC service contract’s advantages, there are several that benefit both sides. These advantages include:

  • A mutual agreement of what services will be performed and at what cost
  • The signification of the seriousness to complete the HVAC service
  • A set of instructions and agreements in case a dispute arises

Disadvantages Of An HVAC Service Contract

The disadvantages of an HVAC service contract include:

  • Costs associated with drafting a legally enforceable contract
  • Making it a challenge to cancel the agreement should a party’s situation change

As you can see, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of an HVAC contract. If you are considering one for your company, consider the cost and how you can go about drafting the first iteration.

Preparing Your HVAC Contract With A Lawyer Vs. A Template

While templates can help you get a jumpstart on a contract, it does not compare to the value added by a lawyer. Templates are usually recycled from other unrelated agreements into HVAC contracts, including a roofing contract , construction contract , landscaping contract , or plumbing contracts .

A lawyer can also protect your rights, guarantee his or her work, and help you on how to negotiate a contract . He or she will also prepare your contract so that it is proper for your business type, including sole-proprietorships and LLCs.
