Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Precision Mechanical can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one 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 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 help identify 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 important to understand all of the 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 a variety of 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 household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit 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 Rapid City day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
