Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about air conditioning service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Colvin's Heating and Cooling 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 believe 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 are required 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 help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s vital to read all the 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 have a better chance operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your air conditioner will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm Excelsior Springs day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
