It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Phelps Heating & Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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 the 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 completed to keep your warranty in effect. 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter 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 confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Hodgenville night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
