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. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Winters Heating and Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need a plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two distinctively separate things—and in a lot cases, you are required to have ongoing air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s important to go through all details of your warranty so you recognize what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has lots of other benefits. Properly maintained systems are 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 household healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your air conditioner will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Franklin day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
