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 flip 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 go out in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Front Royal expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard to get caught up 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 questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Front Royal weather starts getting questionable this winter.
The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be maintained like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things working smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
