There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Should you get 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 a plan because the furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating 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 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
Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance provides other benefits that will help you. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household healthier and your home cleaner.
That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will operate 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.
