Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to read all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. 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 make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Carlsbad night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
