Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Kowalski Heating & Cooling is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required 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 find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to review all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your family 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 McMurray night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
