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? Air Houston Mechanical LLC is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 one because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Huffman night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
