Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

Service

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? Effective Service Group, LLC 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 a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots 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 recognize 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 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems will be more likely 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.

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