Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc 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 believe they don’t need the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your air conditioner is operating as it should and flag any 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 go through all details of your warranty so you recognize 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 a variety of 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.

Yet another benefit 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 Heflin day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
