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 planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 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 Dresden expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially leading to 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 come 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 Dresden 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 working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
