Although 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Abilene expect no issues, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep various issues that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four concerns 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 Abilene 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
