Although 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 prevented with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Macon expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep various issues that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement
- A hazardous 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 problems that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Macon weather starts getting bad 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 lifecycle of the equipment.
