There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning is here to answer your questions and clear up the 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 a plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required 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 identify 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 important to read 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.
Yet another benefit is that it helps ensure 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 arrange an emergency repair.
