There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? B & B Heating & Cooling 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 a plan because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. 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 not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to review all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 could save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Florissant night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
