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 possibly 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Alice expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get engrossed 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of headaches that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Diminished efficiency because your furnace is running 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Alice 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
