Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Metro Atlanta09/02/2015Even though 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 flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and maybe 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Metro Atlanta expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get stuck 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 a must?” Arranging 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 concerns that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Metro Atlanta weather starts getting bad 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 life of the equipment.
