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 planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been stopped with basic furnace service?
The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in South Beloit and Belvidere expect no problems, 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a number of headaches that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to
Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the South Beloit and Belvidere weather starts getting a little dicey 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 operating smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
