Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and potentially 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Perry expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of problems that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A hazardous 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 problems that can pop 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 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 operating smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
