Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not 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 Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems will be more likely 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 family healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit is that it helps confirm your furnace will operate 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 schedule an emergency repair.
