Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

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 the plan cover? Three Rivers Heating & 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 one because their air conditioning is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two separate things—and in many cases, you are required to have ongoing air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your air conditioner is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s vital to go through all 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 many other benefits. Properly maintained systems have a better chance operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure your air conditioner will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a hot Portland day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
