Have used big companies in the past with prepaid service. Never convinced it was worthwhile. The last two years we went without a safety net. Sure enough, this year as the temperature outside dropped, the furnace started cycling and the indoor temperature would not rise out of the teens. Found Spring Home Comfort through Home Stars. Spouse dealt with them and was very impressed. The serviceman cleaned a pressure control, and the furnace has been fine ever since. Very modest cost, very efficient, no part swapping, no dire prognostications, just great service.
