Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Orrville09/02/2015Even though the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and maybe 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 prevented with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Orrville expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a must?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of problems that can arise, 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 problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can pop 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 Orrville weather starts getting bad this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be serviced 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.
