Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It 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 it cover? AC Sales is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need a plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in place. These visits help 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 critical to read all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance 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 cool Lafayette night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
