There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? GV Heating & Air 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 one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially 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.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Crystal and Twin Cities night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
