Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Farris Heating & Air can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, 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 wise to review 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Bartlesville night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
