Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the value there? What should it include? Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning is here to answer your questions and clear up the confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to understand all the details of your warranty so you know 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 can potentially save you money on utility bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Winnipeg night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
