Furnace Service

Which Furnace Service Plan Should I Get?

There can be some inconsistent info about furnace service plans. Is it wise to purchase one? Is it worth it? What should the plan cover? Contra Costa Heating & AC can help answer your questions and erase some 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 the repair plan because their 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 performed to keep your warranty in place. 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 typically only covers major components of a furnace, and does not cover labor costs, which can add up quickly. It’s critical to read 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 can potentially save you some money on your utility costs. They also help to enhance your home’s air, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

That’s not all, another benefit of routine maintenance is that it helps confirm your furnace will run correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are low. The last thing you want on a brisk the Bay Area night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
