Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? HCE Systems 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 furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in many cases, you will 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 larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance 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 Norton night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
