Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? AW Heating & Air Conditioning can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume 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 many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize 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 critical 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Lincoln night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
