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 the plan cover? Gilray Heating and Cooling 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 the repair plan 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 performed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating 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 they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to review 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 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 better filter 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 run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Wausau night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
