Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it include? Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc. is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running 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 they often only cover parts 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 Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter 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 brisk Elmhurst night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
