Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning 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 home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover 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 Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner. That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance 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 Bishop night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
