There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 a plan 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 performed to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, 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 comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter 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 ensure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Columbus night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
