Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? JTech Mechanical can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think 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 many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important 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 may save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you 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 cold Magnolia night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
