There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? H&C Heating and Cooling 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 their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, 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 operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Laurel night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
