Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Rescue Heating & Air 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 one because their 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 done to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically 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 understand all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely 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 family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Alice night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
