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 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Racine expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of headaches that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is working 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 miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Racine 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
