Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need a plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read all the details of your warranty so you understand what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you money on utility bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cool Hattiesburg night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
