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. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Scott Temperature is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two separate things—and in lots of cases, you are required to have ongoing air conditioning service done 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 usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s vital to understand all of 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 a variety of 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.

Yet another benefit 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 hot Lawrence day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
