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. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Honke Heating & AC 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 believe they don’t need a plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, 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

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility 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 ensure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Gresham night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
