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 the value there? What should the plan cover? B & G HVAC is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume 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 a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will 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 they often only cover parts and not 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family 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 cold Marshalltown night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
