Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? Bormida Mechanical Services Inc is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, 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 critical to review all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Springfield night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
