Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Jett's Heating & Air Inc. is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. 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 does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, 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 run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold McHenry night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
