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 thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to quit running in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Kutztown expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a must?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid a variety of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace problems that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Kutztown 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
