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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Paxinos expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any concerns last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same luck this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of issues that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- A hazardous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is running harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Paxinos weather starts getting questionable 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
