There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because their 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 completed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to read all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many other 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 family healthier and your home cleaner.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool West Jefferson night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
