Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Colvin's Inc is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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 a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Along with keeping your system operating safely, 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 household 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 brisk Excelsior Springs night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
