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 the cost worth it? What should it 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 believe they don’t need the repair plan because their 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 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 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 know what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

In addition to making sure your equipment is working properly, 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 cold the Bay Area night is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
