Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? PWA Heating & Cooling Inc is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. 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 typically only covers major components of a furnace, 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

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone 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.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Plainfield night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
