It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Freed Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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 the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is working 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 important to read 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 are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.
Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Moline night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
