Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Do you need one? Is it worth it? What should it include? Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd 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 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 many cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service performed to keep your warranty valid. These visits help ensure your furnace is running as it should and help recognize potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of a furnace, and not labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s important to understand all the details of your warranty so you understand 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 some money on your utility costs. They also help better filter your home’s air, 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 brisk Waterloo night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
