Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it include? McCune Heating & Cooling 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 believe they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize 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 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 work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Augusta night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
