Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Perry

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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Perry expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any concerns last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”

Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade various headaches that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
  • Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement
  • An unsafe situation if there are any problems 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 issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Perry weather starts getting a little dicey this winter.

The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things running smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
