Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning 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 the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant 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. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, 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 critical to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular 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 cold the Main Line night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
