Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Vogts Heating & Air is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because the 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 services help to make sure 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 does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, 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 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.
