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 thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and possibly months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working 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 counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Neptune City expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a variety of problems that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Neptune City 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.
