Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Auburn09/02/2015Even 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and possibly 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 impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Auburn expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough to get engrossed 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade various issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Auburn weather starts getting questionable 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
