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 thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn 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 stopped with basic furnace service?
The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Ballwin and St. Charles expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard 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?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid various headaches that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace problems 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
- Reduced efficiency because your furnace is running 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 running on you when the Ballwin and St. Charles 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 lifespan of the equipment.
