There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
Perhaps 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. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two distinctively separate things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is working as it should and highlight potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of an air conditioner, and does not cover labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s vital to understand all of 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 many other benefits. Properly maintained systems have a better chance operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility 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 ensure your air conditioner will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm Greater Richmond day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
