Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it include? Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two separate things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is working as it should and help identify 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 quickly add up. It’s vital to understand all of 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 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. That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your air conditioner will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Bakersfield day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
