Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Florissant09/02/2015Although 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 turn 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Florissant expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get engrossed 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 questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep 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 concerns 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 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 Florissant 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
