Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Winters Heating and Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think 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 lots of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, 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 furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Franklin night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
