Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Lycoming Heating Company 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 the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, 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 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 will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. 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 make sure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Williamsport night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
