Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Madera night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
