While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and maybe 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Thedford expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Thedford 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
