While 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The impending 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 Huntsville expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
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 concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any concerns 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 arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Huntsville weather starts getting questionable 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 life of the equipment.
