Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it include? Quality Refrigeration can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their 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 effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, 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 wise 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Baltimore night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
