Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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 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 will need to have ongoing air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should and flag any potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. 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

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other 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 your household 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 hot Hudsonville day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
