Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about air conditioning service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services 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 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 a lot cases, you are required to have regular air conditioning service done 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 bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s important to understand all of 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 are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, 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 hot Anchorage day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
