Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in West Valley09/02/2015While 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 few 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in West Valley expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get caught up in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any issues last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same good fortune this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any issues 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 problems that can come 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 West Valley weather starts getting a little dicey 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 working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
