Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? 1st Choice Service Group Inc is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need the repair plan 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 are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly 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 review all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Asheville night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
