Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should the plan cover? Bon Air Service Company 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 many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, 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 wise 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Grand Prairie night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
