Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to read all the details of your warranty so you know 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 are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may 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.

Another benefit of regular 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 cool Lake Forest night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
