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. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two separate things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have ongoing air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will 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 add up quickly. 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

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has lots of other benefits. Properly maintained systems have a better chance 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 you healthier and your home cleaner.

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