It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about air conditioning service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Total Comfort 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 believe they don’t need one because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two separate things—and in a lot cases, you actually need to have ongoing air conditioning service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your air conditioner is operating as it should and highlight potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can quickly add up. It’s important to go through all details of your warranty so you recognize what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has lots of other 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 your household healthier and your home cleaner.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your air conditioner will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warm Franklin Lakes day is to need to arrange for an emergency repair.
