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? Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC 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 the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two separate things—and in lots of cases, you are required to have ongoing air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can quickly add up. 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

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be 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 family healthier and your home cleaner.

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