Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it include? West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe 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 many 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 working as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to review all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner. Yet another benefit 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 Hudsonville night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
