Although 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 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 stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been avoided with basic furnace service?
The looming 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 Justin expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get engrossed 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade a number of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning 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 running 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Justin 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
