Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to understand all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your household 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 Circleville night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
