Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in McMurray09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about 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 quit running 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 idle for months on end. While most homeowners in McMurray expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy to get stuck in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems 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 a necessity?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of problems that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be building up, potentially meaning furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any issues 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 concerns that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the McMurray 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
