Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning 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 believe they don’t need the repair 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 will need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help find 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 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 has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could 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. That’s not all, another benefit of routine 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 cool Olathe night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
