Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it include? Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC 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 assume they don’t need one because their air conditioning is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot cases, you will need to have routine air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and does not cover labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may help save costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household 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 Ellsworth day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
