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. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning 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 a 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 will need to have regular air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is operating 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 critical to go through all details of your warranty so you recognize what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has lots of other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be 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 you healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your air conditioner will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Buellton day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
