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 the plan cover? M & S Heating & Air LLC can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often think they don’t need a plan because the furnace is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure 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 they often only cover parts and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to review 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 offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially 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.

Yet another benefit 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 Mechanicsville night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
