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 it worth it? What should the plan cover? Central Air Inc is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need a plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Portland Metro night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
