Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need a plan because the furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to read all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Odessa night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
