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 thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 stopped with basic furnace service?
The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Branchville expect no issues, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any problems 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 pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Branchville 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
