Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement 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 services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize 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 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 can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Columbus night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
