There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to read 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone 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 your family healthier and your home cleaner.
Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Heflin night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
