There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? Age Heating & Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is working 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 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 comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. 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.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance 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 cool Sandpoint night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
