Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion. But I Have a Warranty Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical 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 are more prone 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 you healthier and your home cleaner. Another benefit of regular maintenance 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 cold Lodi night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
