Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should the plan 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 assume 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 actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help find potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually 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 understand what’s covered and what isn’t. Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance has many other benefits. Properly maintained systems will be more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could 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 ensure your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Williamsport night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
