There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get 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
Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need a plan because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically 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
Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially 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.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate 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.
