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. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Heartland Heating & Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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 a plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two distinctively separate things—and in a lot cases, you are required to have regular air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is working 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 does not cover labor costs, which can quickly add up. 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 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 to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your air conditioner will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Des Moines day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
