It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Street Heating and Cooling can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become major, 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 understand all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.
Yet another benefit is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Rapid City night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
