Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Rocky Mount09/02/2015While 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and possibly 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Rocky Mount expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service a must?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep various problems that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially ending with 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 running harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Rocky Mount weather starts getting a little dicey 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 working smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
