Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is the value there? What should it cover? Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need the repair plan because their furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in place. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize 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 important to review all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also help better filter your home’s air, helping to keep you healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Greater Richmond night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
