Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing can help answer your questions and erase some 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 actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically 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 review all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Along with keeping your system operating safely, 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 help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family 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 Selbyville night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
