Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Faust Air Conditioning and Heating can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need a plan because the furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will 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 does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to read all the details of your warranty so you know 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you 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 Wharton night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
