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 the value there? What should it include? LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc. 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 believe they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating 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 does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to review 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Paxinos night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
