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 the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe 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 lots of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help find 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 wise to review all the details of your warranty so you know 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 likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Thedford night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
