Should I Buy a Home Warranty to Cover My Air Conditioner?

When the summer sun is beating down on your house, nothing can be more important for your comfort or sanity than a functional central air conditioning system. If your A/C goes down for any reason, getting it running again is your highest priority. Because the coverage offered by your unit’s manufacturer warranty is likely to be limited — or expired — consider purchasing a cooling repair plan through Oncourse Home Solutions.

But before you buy, it’s important to weigh the many variables that go into that decision. Here are some factors to consider.

What Will a Warranty Cover?

When you purchase a home warranty, A/C unit repairs will be much easier to obtain. The plans we provide can cover the costs of fixing, or aid in replacing, your broken air conditioning system, including parts and labor. Our home warranty products are not restricted by the age, make or model of your unit.

What Makes a Warranty a Good Idea?

The benefits of buying an A/C unit warranty become self-evident when your cooling system conks out in the middle of a heat wave. Because that’s not the best time to buy such a plan, it’s important to know what the most significant A/C unit warranty benefits are before you have a problem. They include:

  • Added protection — Homeowner’s insurance typically only covers damages caused by catastrophic events such as a flood or fire. In contrast, warranties can protect you in cases where regular wear and tear is to blame for your outage.
  • Expert service — Oncourse Home Solutions has an extensive network of locally based contractors that it works with to provide services. This means you won’t have to worry about vetting them on your own.
  • 24/7 phone assistance — Oncourse Home Solutions customer care representatives are on call around the clock, so you can get the process started as soon as you realize you have a problem.

Why a Home Warranty Would Make Sense for You

There are several circumstances that make warranty coverage a good idea for your property and equipment. Here are a few questions to ask before making a decision:

  • Is your unit already covered? — It’s a good idea to carefully review your manufacturer’s warranty. Has it already expired? If you determine that you don’t already have protection that covers most circumstances, our home warranty coverage can fill the void.
  • How old is it? —If your central air conditioning system has been operating for several years, and especially if you’ve had it for more than a decade, you might want to think seriously about purchasing a plan.
  • How much do you want to spend on repairs? — Having your A/C unit break down without coverage could mean you’ll have to pay for the repairs out of pocket. If this is something you’d like to avoid, a Oncourse Home Solutions warranty will provide peace of mind.
