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. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Vogts Heating & Air 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 one because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two separate things—and in a lot cases, you will 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 help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 are 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 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 Pocatello day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
