Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Point Heating & Cooling is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their 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 performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular 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 brisk Plover night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
