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? Stieferman Heating Company 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 think 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 many cases, you are required to have routine air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should and flag any potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s critical to understand all of the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 can potentially save you money on utility bills. 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 warm Jefferson City day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
