Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There can be some inconsistent info 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 One of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often believe they don’t need one because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is working 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 wise 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you 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 cold Cedar Rapids night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
