Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Stanford Heating & Cooling 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 believe they don’t need the repair plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. The maintenance service plan and a warrant are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in place. These services help to make sure your furnace is running as it should and help identify potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance offers many more benefits. Properly maintained systems are more prone to operate at peak efficiency, which may save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will work correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk Bloomfield night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
