Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Plover09/02/2015Although 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 flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and possibly 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 depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Plover expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of issues that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be building up, potentially meaning furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Plover weather starts getting a little dicey 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 working smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
