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 flip 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Bossier City 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 problems last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same lucky break this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid various problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace problems that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any issues 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 issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Bossier City weather starts getting bad 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 lifespan of the equipment.
