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 few weeks, and potentially 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 stopped with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Plover expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep various problems that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A hazardous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Diminished efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Plover weather starts getting bad this winter.
The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
