Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Home Comfort Heating & Air can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need one because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two separate things—and in a lot cases, you are required to have regular air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should and highlight potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and does not cover labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s vital to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has lots of other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may help save costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household 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 Elk River day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
