Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Air Temperature Control can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually 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 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit 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 cold Macon night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
