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 the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? WM J Kraus & Son 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 assume 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 actually need to have regular air conditioning service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your air conditioner is running as it should and flag any potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and does not cover labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s critical 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 many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. 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 ensure your air conditioner will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Keokuk day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
