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 include? Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 a plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, 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 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 could save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family 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 Scottsboro night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
