Although 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 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 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 Tucker expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 must?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of headaches that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially meaning 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 working harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Tucker 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
