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 considering furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Troy expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get engrossed 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 necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced efficiency because your furnace is running 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Troy 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
