Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Watts Electrical & Air Conditioning 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 a plan because their home’s 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. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually 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 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Columbia night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
