Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure 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 they often only cover parts and not 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially 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.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool McMurray night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
