Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Macon09/02/2015While 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 maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to quit running 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 counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Macon 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 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 a necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of headaches that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace concerns 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 Reduced efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule 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 treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
