Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Street Heating and Cooling is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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 the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many 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 working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover 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 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 you healthier and your home cleaner.

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