Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Locust09/02/2015Although 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and maybe 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 looming 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 Locust expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of problems that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is operating 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 stop working on you when the Locust weather starts getting bad this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be maintained like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
