It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it cover? TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical 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 believe they don’t need a plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.
Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance
Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, 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 run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Libertyville night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
