Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc can help answer your questions and erase some confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit 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 brisk Lake Charles night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
