Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Assured Appliance and Heating & Air is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two distinctively separate things—and in many cases, you will need to have ongoing air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your air conditioner is operating as it should and highlight potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s important to read all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has lots of other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps ensure your air conditioner will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Genoa day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
