Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done 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 commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, 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 money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Derby night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
