Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Thornberry Bros Inc 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 think they don’t need the repair plan because their 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 completed to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to review all the details of your warranty so you comprehend 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 can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit 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 Winchester night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
