Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume 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 many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, 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 critical 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 can potentially save you money on utility 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 run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Augusta night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
