Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and possibly months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Alliance expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any concerns last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of issues that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Diminished efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Alliance weather starts getting bad this winter.
The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be maintained like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things running smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
