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 couple weeks, and possibly months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to quit running in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Savage expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get stuck 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?”
Scheduling 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 issues that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Savage 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 working smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
