Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Should you get one? Is the cost worth it? What should it cover? Northern Comfort Inc is happy to provide some more information to eliminate 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. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These services help to make sure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, 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 comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Not only does it ensure your furnace is working correctly, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more likely to operate at peak efficiency, which could 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.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps make sure your furnace will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a cold Mankato area night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
