Although 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 few 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 avoided with basic furnace service?
The impending 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 Siloam Springs 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of problems that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any problems 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 go out on you when the Siloam Springs 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 lifecycle of the equipment.
