Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Contra Costa Heating & AC 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. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two distinctively separate things—and in a lot cases, you actually need to have ongoing air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is working as it should and flag any potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of an air conditioner, and does not cover labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s important to go through all details of your warranty so you know 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 may help save costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your air conditioner will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm the Bay Area day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
