It 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 cover? Total Comfort is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not 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
In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Franklin Lakes night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
