Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you are required to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is operating as it should and help identify potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read 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 are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which could save you costs on your energy bills. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.

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