Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Central Air LLC 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. 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 not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 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 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 cool Brookfield night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
