Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan 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 assume 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 are required to have routine furnace service done 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 major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to review all the details of your warranty so you know 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 could save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter 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 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.
