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 cover? Hopper Heating and Air can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

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 separate things—and in many 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 running as it should and highlight potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to go through all details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many 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 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 run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a hot Shelby day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
