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 cover? Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots 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 bigger, 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 critical to review all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, 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 cold Carpentersville night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
