There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. 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 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 effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help find 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 review all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.
Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk West Columbia night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
