Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Abilene Air-Tech 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 assume they don’t need a plan 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 actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly 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 comprehend 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.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Abilene night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
