Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about air conditioning service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Farnell Mechanical, Inc. is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot cases, you actually need to have regular air conditioning service performed 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 not labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s vital to read all the details of your warranty so you know 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 may help save costs on your energy 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 make sure your air conditioner will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm Opelika day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
