Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required 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 bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, 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

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Carpentersville night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
