Your furnace is one of the most expensive items in your home. Taking good care of it is crucial both to your family’s comfort and your household budget. Half of the average home’s energy spending goes to heating and cooling.
At TF Complete Heating & Cooling, we always recommend that customers take the proactive step of protecting their heating equipment with some form of coverage. Your home insurance will rarely cover the cost of a furnace replacement, and manufacturers’ warranties are often quite narrow about the parts they replace.
So, many homeowners in Bristol, Worcester, Middlesex and Norfolk counties go with a home warranty company. Let’s discuss what this coverage offers for your heating system.
A home warranty is a policy that protects you financially with regard to your heating systems, air conditioning, and other major appliances. Homeowners typically have the choice of covering one appliance/system or a bundled group. Like standard insurance, these warranties involve a monthly premium. Some of the biggest companies in this sector are American Home Shield, Liberty Home Guard, and Select Home Warranty.
With a home warranty, you are covered for furnace breakdowns caused by normal wear and tear, as well as improper installation or poor maintenance. Some plans cover replacement parts too and offer guarantees on their repairs. This typically extends to the ductwork of your heating system too.
Home warranties do not cover damage to your equipment caused by accidents or natural disasters.
An alternative to a home warranty is a service plan from your home comfort provider.
Heating and cooling companies like ours offer service plans for heating equipment, including furnaces. Our affordable Complete Heating Plan provides a range of benefits, including:
The annual maintenance visit is essential and worth the price of the coverage by itself. Getting an annual tune-up ensures your equipment is working at peak efficiency. Our technicians will catch small issues before they become expensive repairs. Notably, most manufacturers’ warranties require you to get a yearly tune-up to maintain coverage.
In this regard, a service plan is often a better deal than a home warranty because it ensures continued high performance from your furnace, not just a discount when it breaks down.
If you’re looking for a dependable company that will handle furnace installation as well as repairs and maintenance for years to come, TF Complete Heating & Cooling is there for you. Keeping your home warm and safe is our top priority, no matter what weather a Massachusetts winter throws our way. And our service plans ensure that your heating equipment operates well.
