Even though 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 maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to go out in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in McMurray expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep various headaches that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- A hazardous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the McMurray weather starts getting questionable this winter.
The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be serviced 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.
