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 few 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 avoided 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 Heflin expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy to get stuck in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns 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 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 Heflin weather starts getting bad 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 life of the equipment.
