Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Central Heating & Plumbing is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become bigger, 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 important to understand all the details of your warranty so you know 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could 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.

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 cold New Castle night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
