Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?10/20/2017It can be consuming when you start looking at the information about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is the value there? What should it include? Garoken Energy Co. Inc. 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 a plan because their furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in a lot of cases, you are required to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is operating as it should and help find potential problems before they become major, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s wise to understand 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 prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you some money on your utility costs. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep you 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 cold Beaverton night is to have to arrange an emergency repair. Built-In Motivation to Schedule Routine Maintenance At Garoken Energy Co.
