It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Olde Towne Heating & Air 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 believe they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically 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 review all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.
Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Mount Pleasant night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
