Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? J.L. Brady Company LLC is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot 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 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 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 understand what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, 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 filter your home’s air better, 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 Moline night is to have to arrange an emergency repair. Built-In Motivation to Schedule Routine Maintenance At J.L.
