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. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Gilray Heating and Cooling 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 lots of cases, you actually need to have ongoing air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is operating as it should and flag any potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s vital to read all the details of your warranty so you recognize 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could help you bring down those energy costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps ensure your air conditioner will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm Wausau day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
