Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because the furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to read all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

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