Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Precision Mechanical can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, 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 read 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 household healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Rapid City night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
