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 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 stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service?
The looming 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 Marshalltown expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough to get stuck 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Diminished efficiency because your furnace is operating 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 miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Marshalltown 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
