Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Marshalltown

While 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 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 go out 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 relying on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Marshalltown expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can come up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
  • Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement
  • A hazardous 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it go out 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 working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
