Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Ilten's Incorporated is happy to provide some more information to eliminate confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find 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 understand 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 provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you money on utility bills. 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 make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Cedar Rapids night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
