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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few 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 counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Middletown expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s easy to get caught up 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade various headaches that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any concerns 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 concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Middletown 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
