Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly 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 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 can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit 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 brisk Utica night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
