Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Lanz Furnace and Fireplace is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant 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. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running 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 not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 likely 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.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Monroe night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
