There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need 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 believe they don’t need the repair plan because the furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover 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
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 could save you money on utility bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, 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 cold Winnipeg night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
