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 it worth it? What should it cover? Durable Service 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 a plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to review 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 provides other benefits that will help you. 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 your household healthier and your home cleaner.

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