While 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 upcoming 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 Rock Hill expect no issues, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep various problems that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially meaning 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 running 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 Rock Hill weather starts getting questionable 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
