Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? James Heating & A/C, Inc 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, 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 understand all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could 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. Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Lexington night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
