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 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 prevented with basic furnace service?
The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in McHenry 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 issues 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 necessary?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a number of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any problems 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 problems that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the McHenry 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 running smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
