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 it include? Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning can help answer your questions and erase some 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. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have regular 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 help identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s vital to go through all details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to 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.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps make sure your air conditioner will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Kearney day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
