Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

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? Air Alliance Team 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 assume they don’t need the repair 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 are required 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 identify potential problems before they become major, 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 know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep your household 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 cool Ballwin and St. Charles night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
