Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? Forster Heating can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is running 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 does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to read all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Auburn night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
