Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Knoechel Heating Company is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant 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. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize 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 understand 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family 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 Zelienople night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
