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 the plan cover? Appalachian Heating is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need a plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two separate things—and in a lot cases, you are required to have regular air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your air conditioner is operating as it should and highlight potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you recognize 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 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 help better filter your home’s air, 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 warm Beckley and Mount Hope day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
