Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it include? McFadden Heating & Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s 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 in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Dresden night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
