Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? Tri County Climate Control LLC is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly 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 comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Bend night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
