Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Wallpe Heating & Cooling is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume 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 completed to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to understand all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

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