Although 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 turn 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 stopped 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 a lot of homeowners in Brookfield expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get engrossed 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- A hazardous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can pop 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 Brookfield 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
