It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? McFadden 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 the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating 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 does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household 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 cold Dresden night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
