Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’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? Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion. But I Have a Warranty One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover 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 In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family 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 Hattiesburg night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
