Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Craig's Heating & Cooling 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 a 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 done to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, 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 important to review 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Bountiful night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
