Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get 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 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 will need to have routine furnace service done 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 usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you know 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 prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure 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 arrange an emergency repair.
