Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it include? Schagrin Gas Company 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read 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 are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Middletown night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
