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 it worth it? What should the plan cover? Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces 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 one because the 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 find potential problems before they become bigger, 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 critical to understand all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular 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 cold Alliance night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
