It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? Heartland Heating & 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 a plan because their 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 completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize 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 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you 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 Des Moines night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
