Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Service Plus Mechanical is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit is that it helps confirm your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Aurora night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
