Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Kelley Mechanical is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need one because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service performed 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 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 wise to review 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may 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.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Lexington night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
