Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Point Heating & Cooling is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because the 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 in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is running 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 understand 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 help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance 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 Plover night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
