There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
A confusing piece about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often believe 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 actually need to have regular air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is operating as it should and flag any potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. 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 lots of other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could help you bring down those energy costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.
Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your air conditioner will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm West Columbia day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
