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? American HVAC Inc 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 a plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two distinctively separate things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your air conditioner is running as it should and highlight potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you know 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 could help you bring down those energy costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your air conditioner will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a hot San Jose day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
