Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Mitchell Heating 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 believe they don’t need a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly 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 comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. 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 you healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Colorado Springs night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
