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 value there? What should it cover? Ilten's Incorporated 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 a plan because their air conditioning is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is running as it should and highlight potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of an air conditioner, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to go through all details of your warranty so you know 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 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 help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance 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 hot Cedar Rapids day is to have an emergency repair pop up.
