Even though the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 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 Rocky Mount expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of issues that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A hazardous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running 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 treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things working smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
