Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Scott Temperature is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to review 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 are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Lawrence night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
