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 the value there? What should it include? SchagrinGAS 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 the 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 valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, 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 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 are more likely 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 your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance 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.
