Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

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 include? Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning 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 think they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to read all the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

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