Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Olde Towne Heating & Air is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, 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 read all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially 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.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Mount Pleasant night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
