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 believe they don’t need one because their home’s 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 completed to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually 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 read all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 could 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 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.
