There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
A confusing piece about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often think 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 many cases, you will need to have routine air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is working as it should and highlight potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically 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 vital to go through all details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 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 to enhance 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 operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm Pella day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
