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? Goode Bros AC & Heating can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their 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 place. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to review all the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Katy night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
