Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Airmen HVAC Service 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 assume they don’t need a plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help identify 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 wise to understand 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance 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 operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Montoursville night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
