There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to understand all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.
Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Bishop night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
