Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it cover? B & B Heating & Cooling 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 assume they don’t need a plan because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to understand all the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Florissant night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
