Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. 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 the repair 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 done to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will 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 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household 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 Branchville night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
