There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Patterson & Stirling Inc 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 the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two distinctively separate things—and in a lot cases, you are required to have routine air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should and highlight potential problems before they become larger, 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 comprehend 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 a variety of benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to 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.
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 warm Erie day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
