Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Dearing's Service & Solutions 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, 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 understand all the details of your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Huntingburg night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
