Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Freed Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their 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 done to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Moline night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
