There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Vogts Heating & Air is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.
But I Have a Warranty
A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of 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 identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand 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 costs on your energy 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 make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Pocatello night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
