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 cost worth it? What should the plan cover? Northern Comfort Inc 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 think they don’t need one because the furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in many cases, you will need to have routine furnace service completed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover 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 prone to operate at peak efficiency, which can potentially 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 ensure your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Mankato area night is to have to arrange an emergency repair.
