Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should it cover? Stieferman Heating Company Inc can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

A confusing piece about furnace repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need a plan because their home’s furnace is under warranty. A warranty and a maintenance service plan are two very different things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have routine furnace service done to keep your warranty in effect. These visits help ensure your furnace is working as it should and help find potential problems before they become larger, and expensive, problems. A warranty usually 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 read 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 can potentially save you costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your household 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 brisk Jefferson City night is to have to call for an emergency repair.
