Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Heflin Posted September 2, 2015 While 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 couple weeks, and possibly 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 relying on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Heflin expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get caught up in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any issues 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 sidestep a variety of problems that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Heflin weather starts getting a little dicey 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
